2nd July 2018 - Poetry and translation

This month we present the translation of two poems by Brazilian poets.

 

First the poem by Ricardo de Souza, mentioning a positive world made of love and peace, regardless the duties, doubts and uncertainties...

 

Yes, always yes, by Ricardo de Souza


I live in the world of duties, doubts, uncertainties, taxes,
I live in the world of wars, of individualism, with lack of ideas,
I live in the world of beautiful landscapes, kind people, balance, love and peace,
I live in the world where complaining does not solve,
I come to this world with the poor purpose of leaving the little knowledge I know,
I come to this world with the duty of change, innovation, vision of the future for the quality of life of many,
I come to leave my name written in the memory of those I can reach.

 

The same poem in Portuguese:

 

Sim, Sempre Sim

 

Vivo no mundo de deveres, dúvidas, incertezas, impostos,

Vivo no mundo de guerras, de individualismo, afogado na pobreza de espírito,

Vivo no mundo de paisagens bonitas, pessoas bondosas, equilíbrio, amor e paz,

Vivo no mundo aonde reclamar não resolve,

Venho a este mundo com o pobre objetivo de deixar o pouco conhecimento que sei,

Venho a este mundo com o dever de mudança, inovação, visão de futuro em prol da qualidade de vida de muitos,

Venho deixar o meu nome escrito na memória dos que eu puder alcançar.

 

 A poem by the Brazilian poet Maria Coquemala.

MY SOUL


Light, my soul gets free and grows.
My soul that has never been so joyful,
who abandons this departing body.
       My soul transcends, advances in space ...
       Driven by the wings of desire, go to the infinite ...
       My soul goes through the rainbow.
       and is painted with the colors of joy.
All the painful memories are erased.
Silence for ever the voices of longing,
of sorrow, of pain, of suffering.
      They reveal themselves to my soul,
      the secrets of the Universe ...
      There are no unanswered questions.
      There is no longer body, agony and death.
And my whole soul, without cuts,
fulfill all my fantasies.
Reason and feeling merge in harmony.
     My walking soul advances in infinity
     unraveling paths in eternity.


Note: in the book "Pulsar" (2015), All Print Editora, São Paulo, Brazil

 

Original in Portuguese:

 

MINHA ALMA


Leve, minha alma se liberta e cresce.
Minha alma que nunca esteve tão alegre,
que abandona este corpo que se esvai.
      Minha alma transcende, avança no espaço...
      Levada pelas asas do desejo, ruma ao infinito...
      Minha alma atravessa o arco-íris
      e se pinta com as cores da alegria.
Apagam-se todas as lembranças doloridas.
Silenciam para sempre as vozes da saudade,
da tristeza, da dor, do sofrimento.
     Vão-se revelando à minha alma,
     os segredos todos do Universo...
     Já não há perguntas sem respostas.
     Já não há corpo, agonia e morte.
E a minha alma inteira, sem recortes,
realiza todas as minhas fantasias.
Razão e sentimento se fundem em harmonia.
    Minha alma andarilha avança no infinito
    desvendando veredas na eternidade.

"Nella Fantasia" by Summer Watson

[Italian]

 

Nella Fantasia

 

Nella fantasia io vedo un mondo giusto

Li tutti vivono in pace e in onestà

Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere

Come le nuvole che volano

Pien' d'umanità in fondo all'anima


Nella fantasia io vedo un mondo chiaro

Li anche la notte è meno oscura

Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere

Come le nuvole che volano


Nella fantasia esiste un vento caldo

Che soffia sulle città, come amico

Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere

Come le nuvole che volano

Pien' d'umanità in fondo all'anima

 

[English]

 

In My Fantasy


In my imagination I see a fair world,
Everyone lives in peace and in honesty there.
I dream of souls that are always free,
Like the clouds that fly,
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul.

In my imagination I see a bright world,
Even the night is less dark there.
I dream of souls that are always free,
Like clouds that fly.

In my imagination there exists a warm wind,
That breathes on the cities, like a friend.
I dream of souls that are always free,
Like clouds that fly,
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul.

 

From: http://lyricstranslate.com/en/nella-fantasia-my-fantasy.html

 

[Portuguese]

 

Na minha fantasia 

Na minha imaginação eu vejo um mundo justo, 
E lá todos vivem em paz e honestidade. 
Eu sonho com almas que são sempre livres, 
Tal como as nuvens que voam, 
Cheias de humanidade até às profundidades do seu ser. 

Na minha imaginação eu vejo um mundo luminoso 
Onde mesmo a noite é menos sombria 
Eu sonho que lá as almas são sempre livres, 
Como nuvens a voar 

Na minha imaginação existe um vento quente 
Que sopra sobre a cidade, como um amigo 
Eu sonho com almas sempre livres, 
Como nuvens que voam, 
Cheias de humanidade até ao mais recôndito lugar do seu ser.

Fires in California

Forest fires in California have been an example of climate change. We can not forget this situation and above all we can not become indifferent people. We have here a video that aims to encourage our individual work in such a way that we will all achieve something positive. For example, if each one of us plants a tree and water it we will do a lot and even if we can sow some trees, it would be excellent.

And don't forget to submit your writing to our Contest "Nature 2017-2018"
