some favourite poets

"I want to love, to love heedlessly!
To love for the sake of loving: Here...there...
This one, that other and everyone...
To love! To love! And love no one"

Florbela Espanca - 1894/1930

Don't know if you know her, but she is my favorite poetess of all times.

Here you can read and listen (as a music) to one of her famous poems:





Fernando Pessoa 1888/1935
So rich a single word is not enough to describe him. So... leave you with one of my favourite poems:

Here you can listen to it - said by one of the brazilian greatest voices (Maria Bethânia):





Here is the poem:

"All Love Letters are Ridiculous
All love letters are
Ridiculous.
They wouldn't be love letters if they weren't
Ridiculous.
In my time I also wrote love letters
Equally, inevitably
Ridiculous.
But in fact
Only those who've never written
Love letters
Are
Ridiculous.
If I could go back
To when I wrote love letters
Without thinking how
Ridiculous.
The truth is that today
My memories
Of those love letters
Are that is
Ridiculous.
(All more-than-three-syllabe words,
Along with uncountable feelings,
Are naturally
Ridiculous.) "

(Álvaro de Campos - Fernando Pessoa)
