Basedo na pintura de Washington Maguetas

By the Dusk/Ao Entardecer

© Soaroir Maria de Campos

o universo pára ao entardecer
maritacas se refugiam em qualquer lugar
os cães adormecem enroscados à cauda
a dormideira se prepara para a segunda-feira

o universo pára ao entardecer
jovens ansiando pelo novo sol
velhos cabeceando seu crepúsculo
padres orando por suas almas

o universo pára ao entardecer
para a rolinha retornar ao ninho
as naus vergarem seus mastros
o âmago encerrar-se em claustros

o universo pára ao entardecer...
ante a paleta de Maguetas.

São Paulo/SP-Br - Out.30/2007

Free translation:

the universe halts by the dusk
maritacas¹ take refuge everywhere
dogs asleep round their tails
mimosas readying for the Monday

the universe halts by the dusk
young waiting for the sunrise
elder heading their twilight
preachers praying for their souls

the universe halts by the dusk
for the columbina returns to its nest
ships bend their masts
and the soul encloses in cloisters

the universe halts by the dusk
before Maguetas’ palette

¹ - Pionus bird



By the dusk/Ao entardecer

This is lovely poetry. I know a little spanish but not enough to truly appreciate the original version of your poem. Too bad for me. Thank you for sharing this gift, Soaroir. Welcome to AD. Amor y paz,
