Café da manhã – Jacques Prévert Abril 11, 2007

Filed under: Jacques Prévert,poesia — looking4good @ 3:34 pm

Pôs café
na xícara
Pôs leite
na xícara com café
Pôs açúcar
no café com leite
Com a colherzinha
mexeu
Bebeu o café com leite
E pôs a xícara no pires
Sem me falar
acendeu
um cigarro
Fez círculos
com a fumaça
Pôs as cinzas
no cinzeiro
Sem me falar
Sem me olhar
Levantou-se
Pôs
o chapéu na cabeça
Vestiu
a capa de chuva
porque chovia
E saiu
debaixo de chuva
Sem uma palavra
Sem me olhar
Quanto a mim pus
a cabeça entre as mãos
E chorei.

DÉJEUNER DU MATIN

Il a mis le café
Dans la tasse
Il a mis le lait
Dans la tasse de café
Il a mis le sucre
Dans le café au lait
Avec le petit cuiller
Il a tourné
Il a bu le café au lait
Et il a resposé la tasse
Sans me parler
Il a alumé
Une cigarrette
Il a fait des ronds
Avec la fumée
Il a mis des cendres
Dans le cendrier
Sans me parler
Sans me regarder
Il s’est levé
Il a mis
Son chapeau sur la tête
Il a mis
Son manteau de pluie
Parce qu’il pleuvait
Il est parti
Sous la pluie
Sans une parole
Sans me regarder
E moi j’ai pris
Ma tête dans ma main
E j’ai pleuré.

Jacques Prévert (b. in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, on 4 Feb 1900; d. in Omonville-la-Petite, on 11 Apr 1977).
