Recordo ainda… e nada mais me importa…
Aqueles dias de uma luz tão mansa
Que me deixavam, sempre, de lembrança,
Algum brinquedo novo à minha porta…

Mas veio um vento de Desesperança
Soprando cinzas pela noite morta!
E eu pendurei na galharia torta
Todos os meus brinquedos de criança…

Estrada afora após segui… Mas, aí,
Embora idade e senso eu aparente
Não vos iludais o velho que aqui vai:

Eu quero os meus brinquedos novamente!
Sou um pobre menino… acreditai!…
Que envelheceu, um dia, de repente!…

Mário de Miranda Quintana (n. Alegrete (RS) 30 Jul 1906; m. Porto Alegre (RS) 5 Mai 1993)
