You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Trovas

Language: Portuguese (Português)

Quem se condói do meu fado
Vê bem como agora eu ando
De noite sempre acordado
De dia sempre sonhando
O amor perturbou-me tanto
Que este contraste deploro
Querendo chorar eu canto
Querendo cantar eu choro

Curvado à lei dos pesares
Não sei se morro ou se vivo
Senhor dos outros olhares
Só do teu fiquei cativo.
Por isso a verdade nua
Este tormento contém
Minh'alma não sendo tua
Não será de mais ninguém!
