Treasure Island

Artur Azevedo

(7 July 1855 - 22 October 1908 / Maranhão)

Soneto


Recitado por Dias Braga no espetáculo
comemorativo do 50o. aniversário do
falecimento de Martins Pena.

De Martins Pena foi bem triste a sorte:
Moço, bem moço, quando o seu talento
Desabrochava n'um deslumbramento,
Caiu, ferido pela mão da morte!

Era, entretanto, um lutador, um forte,
E, como não merece o esquecimento,
Que a nossa festa, ao menos um momento,
O seu risonho espírito conforte.

Quem o amou e o leu em vão procura
O seu nome na placa de uma esquina
Ou sobre a pedra de uma sepultura!

Porém, voltando à brasileira cena,
Há de brilhar a estrela peregrina
Que se chamou Luiz Carlos Martins Pena!
