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!

D'alguns é branca a ventura

Language: Portuguese (Português)

D'alguns é branca a ventura
A d'outros é cor dos céus!
A minha ventura é negra,
Tem a cor dos olhos teus!

O meu pobre coração
Vale mais que um paraíso;
É uma casita ignorada
Onde mora o teu sorriso...

Não sei que fiz da alegria
Desde o dia em que te vi,
Mas creio que m'a roubaram,
Que eu de certo a não perdi!

Não quero morrer ainda,
Nem deixar os meus amores,
Que a minha vida é tão linda
Como um canteiro de flores.

Por mais que se o resto prova
Ser um contínuo revés,
Morrer venturosa e nova
Melhor me fora talvez.
