La realidad y la miseria me oprimen y, sin embargo, sueño todavia.
( Emile Zola)
Antes que o amor entristeça
e a sombra nos colha em seus laços
caminhemos, as mãos dadas, Lídia,
pela fímbria d'oiro destes jardins.

DOWN BY THE SALLEY GARDENS
DOWN by the salley gardens my love and I did meet;
She passed the salley gardens with little snow-white feet.
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree;
But I, being young and foolish, with her would not agree.
In a field by the river my love and I did stand,
And on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow-white hand.
She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs;
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.
(William Butler Yeats)
