A Estrela

Language: Portuguese (Português)

Há uma estrela no céu
Que ninguém vê senão eu:
Inda bem! -- que a não vê mais ninguém.

Como as outras não reluz,
Mas dá tão serena luz,
Que inda bem! -- não a vê mais ninguém.

No cantinho azul do céu
Onde ela está, não digo eu
A ninguém! -- sei-o eu só: inda bem.

The star

Language: English after the Portuguese (Português)

There is a star in the sky
That no one sees but I;
How good! -- that no one else sees it.

It does not shine as the others do
But it gives out such a calm light!
How good! -- no one else sees it.

In a blue little corner of the sky,
Where it is, I will not tell
No one! -- Only I know it: how good.
