Lìdia



Photo: Juergen Kuehn

Vem sentar-te comigo, Lìdia, à beira do rio.
Sossegadamente fitemos o seu curso e aprendamos
Que a vida passa, e não estamos de mãos enlaçadas.
(Enlacemos as mãos).


Komm setz dich zu mir, Lydia, an des Flusses Rand.
Lass ruhig uns seinen Lauf betrachten, des Lebens Vergänglichkeit
Verstehen und sehen, dass wir einander nicht die Hände halten.
(So lass es uns denn tun).


Vers 1 - Fernando Pessoa - Ricardo Reis - Poesia 12.6.1914

Thank you, Tuca.

  5. Again, I love the photography...I can't understand the poetry, though, because I don't know the language...so I can't comment on that.

    This must be a shot you took in the spring, right? Along the riverbank...

  7. Jacob,
    thank you very much for your visit and your words at the thread Lydia.
    I am sorry, but I never found an english translation of this poem "Lìdia" from the greates Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa. So the blank first verse is in Portuguese and German, only.
    Juergen
