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 17, we are $5,700 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 to join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Coração indeciso

Language: Portuguese (Português)

Ao princípio era apenas simpatia,
já bem perto do amor
e minh'alma vibrava; a alma fulgia
num festivo esplendor.

E tu tão meiga e doce
e terna eras então...
Tomei como se fosse
meio sim, meio não!

Depois já era mais que simpatia,
muito mais - era amor:
um palpitar perpétuo; a alma sofria
num perpétuo terror.

Mas teu olhar - espera! - dizia.
E que expressão!
Comigo tinha que era
meio sim meio não.

Finalmente foi mais que simpatia
e foi mais do que amor:
foi paixão, desvario; eu não vivia
senão por teu favor.

Mas tu, quando eu por fim
te abri meu coração
não me disseste - sim,
nem me disseste - não.
