Duas Paisagens

Word count: 70

Song Cycle by Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887 - 1959)

Not all available information for this cycle is visible. Return to normal display.

1. Manhã na praia

Como um balão vermelho,
Que de invisíveis mãos se desprendesse
E, ardendo numa chama inextinguível
Subisse lento no ar,
Desta manhã de cinza e de fumaça,
O sol sobe no céu
Por sobre o mar.

2. Tarde na Glória

Na tarde clara, que empalidece,
Desponta, de repente,
A floração radiosa da terra.
À beira do mar, sob as árvores,
No alto das hastes de ferro forjado,
Os globos de cristal se enchem de luz.
