I am the escaped one
I am the escaped one,
After I was born
They locked me up inside me
But I left.
My soul seeks me,
Through hills and valley,
I hope my soul
Never finds me.
Know, I Alone
I know, I alone
How much it hurts, this heart
With no faith nor law
Nor melody nor thought.
Only I, only I
And none of this can I say
Because feeling is like the sky -
Seen, nothing in it to see.
'Selected Poems' translated from Fernando Pessoa by J.Griffin
Love is Essential
Love is essential.
Sex, mere accident.
Can be equal
A man's not an animal:
Is a flesh intelligent,
Although sometomes ill.
'Selected Poems' translated from Fernando Pessoa by J.Griffin.
Know Why The Nightingale Sings?
What does the free fall feel like?
Asks the boy with a spark in his eye
Know why the nightingale sings?
Is the answer to everything
Taking a step to a world unbound
Spinning my fantasies all around
Freed from the gravital leash
I swear the heaven's in my reach
Dancing with the spirit of the air
In this ocean so open and fair
Making love to the gods above
On my maiden voyage so bold
Landing safely to the blue lagoon
Don't know if this is the earth or the moon
Joy of living is no more a mask
The Eden I found will forever last
Migrating with the geese
My soul has finally found peace
Doesn't matter that man has no wings
As long as I hear the nightingale sing...
If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise.
To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour.
"O valor das coisas não está no tempo que elas duram, mas na intensidade com que acontecem. Por isso existem momentos inesquecíveis, coisas inexplicáveis e pessoas incomparáveis."
- citado em "Qual o tempo do cuidado?" - Página 49, de MARIA JULIA PAES DE SILVA
