Uma Observaçao


A moça está sentada. O moço amado
Para uma contradança vai "tirá-la":
— Dá-me a honra?" — Pois não- E pela sala
Eil-os a passear de braço dado.

De amor quanto protesto alambicado
Daqueles meigos corações se exala,
Te que as palmas batendo o mestre-sala,
Toma lugar o par apaixonado!

Começa a dança. A mão do moço, esperta,
Bole, mexe, comprime, apalpa, aperta,
Durante uns turbulentos balances,

E uma senhora, que não é criança,
Sentada a um canto observa que na dança
Hoje trabalham mais as mãos que os pés.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
