Many influences I have in my writing and reading activities. Today I will show a poem of Cecilia Meireles, a Brazilian writer. Published many books, romances, and an anthology of poems. Canticos is the collection of twenty-six poems. So beautiful. And express much of what I feel. This is a traduction. She died 1964. His work is a public domain.
The wind of my spirit
Breathed on life
And everything that was ephemeral
And you stayed only you, who is eternal
Numb your body with the music of life.
Has a voluptuous dispersion.
Do not wanna be you.
I want to be the infinite soul of
Exchange your short human dream
By the immortal dream.
Overcomes the misery of being afraid.
Change by Unknown.
Do not you see, he’s bigger?
Can not you see that it has no end?
Do not you see that he is you?
You who are forgetful of you
