Selected Poems

 For Sophia de Mello Breyner, long regarded as among Portugal's major poets, poetry is a way of seeing and receiving life.`Poetry,' she writes, `is an art of being. It does not require my time and labour. It does not ask me to have a science or an aesthetics or a theory. Instead it demands the entireness of my being, a consciousness running deeper than my intellect, a ...more

Sophia de Mello cautiva.

Elegante, diáfana, crítica y tremendamente emotiva.

Esta gente

Esta gente cujo rosto
Às vezes luminoso
E outras vezes tosco

Ora me lembra escravos
Ora me lembra reis

Faz renascer meu gosto
De luta e de combate
Contra o abutre e a cobra
O porco e o milhafre

Pois a gente que tem
O rosto desenhado
Por paciência e fome
É a gente em quem
Um país ocupado
Escreve o seu nome

E em frente desta gente
Ignorada e pisada
Como a pedra do chão
E mais do que a pedra
Humilhada e calcada
Meu canto se renova
E recomeço a busca
De um país liberto
De uma vida limpa
E de um tempo justo
