Quotes[edit]

  • O sol é grande, caem co’a calma as aves,
    do tempo em tal sazão, que sói ser fria;
    esta água que d’alto cai acordar-m’-ia
    do sono não, mas de cuidados graves.
    • O sol é grande, caem co’a calma as aves
  • The sun is high — the birds oppress'd with heat
    Fly to the shade, until refreshing airs
    Lure them again to leave their cool retreat. —
    The falls of water but of wearying cares
    • The sun is high — the birds oppress'd with heat, translated by John Adamson in Lusitania Illustrata, Vol. I, 1842
