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!

Filomela (Philomela)

Language: Portuguese (Portugu√™s)

Gorgeia flébeis amores
Sobre o lago, a ave canora;
Sobre o lago chove a aurora
Da espessa ramada flores...

As notas desse hino ardente
Voam, revoam, suaves;
Como um doudo bando de aves
Vão-se pelo ar transparente...

Rola em ondas a harmonia
pelo outeiro, pela vargem,
torrentes de ouro se espargem
no azul; o sol irradia.

Pelo outeiro, pela vargem,
Rola em ondas a harmonia.

Só se escuta o passarinho
Silêncio! É muda a folhagem;
Baixinho cicia a aragem
E a água sussurra baixinho...

Dos países de onde veio
Chora o clima e as primaveras
Quantas douradas quimeras
Palpitam no seu gorjeio!

O espaço em torno ressoa...
E enquanto saudoso trina
Voa uma ave de rapina...
Sobre ele um milhafre voa

A inocência aos pés do crime
Assim sorri descuidosa
Sem pressentir a maldosa
Garra que, presto, a comprime

Nemhod! Nemhod a Inocência salva
E impede o crime execrando
Tu que as selvas perlustrando
Vives desde o romper d'alva.

Impede o crime execrando, Nemhod
E a Inocência salva.
