"No céu há uma lua e estrelas,
E no meu jardim há mariposas amarelas
Agitando-se em torno do arbusto de azáleas brancas".

I really didn't get very far, to page 41 maybe. Lowell is probably a genius, but I just can't get into it. Maybe pick it up again someday.

I discovered Amy when I was in college. "Patterns" is one of the best poems ever written.

The Taxi

When I go away from you
The world beats dead
Like a slackened drum.
I call out for you against the jutted stars
And shout into the ridges of the wind.

And the lamps of the city prick my eyes
So that I can no longer see your face.
Why should I leave you,
To wound myself upon the sharp edges of the night?”
