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!

Canção do rio

Language: Portuguese (Portugu√™s)

O rio canta sereno,
dentro do bosque sombrio!
Que melodia! Que treno!
Vai murmurando esse rio!

Leva no espelho das águas,
toda a verdura dos ramos;
e a mais saudosa das mágoas
nessa canção que escutamos!
(nessa canção que escutamos!)
Ah! Ah!

Sai da penumbra da mata
para o esplendor da campina;
parece ao sol, que é de prata,
mas canta a mesma surdina!

Reflete a imensa turquesa
do céu que brilha e deslumbra,
mas guarda a vaga tristeza
dessa virente penumbra!
(dessa virente penumbra!)
Ah! Ah!

Como é saudoso e plangente
esse murmúrio do rio;
leva na sua corrente
a alma do bosque sombrio!

Parece ao sol que é de prata,
reflete o largo horizonte,
mas a saudade retrata
a nostalgia da fonte!
(a nostalgia da fonte!)
Ah! Ah!
