 ♥ to our greatest Poet, com Todo o Amor



❝ O meu coração é um pouco maior que o universo inteiro.

My heart is a little larger than the entire universe.
 

from "Saí do comboio" (July 1934), trans. Richard Zenith


❝ O meu passado é tudo quanto não consegui ser.

My past is everything I failed to be.


from The Book of Disquietude, trans. Richard Zenith


❝ Se, depois de eu morrer, quiserem escrever a minha biografia,

Não há nada mais simples.
Tem só duas datas—a da minha nascença e a da minha morte.
Entre uma e outra coisa todos os dias são meus.

If, after I die, they should want to write my biography,
There's nothing simpler.
I've just two dates—of my birth and of my death.
In between the one thing and the other all the days are mine.


Alberto Caeiro (heteronym), "Se, depois de eu morrer"

(November 1915), trans. Jonathan Griffin
