Who would say that this blog would go to reach 800.000 visitors when it started on Sep 3, 2004 ? I would like to thank everybody who helped to make this true: Blogger, Blog’s directories, sites that provide blog tools like Sitemeter, Technorati … , search engines which track this blog, other blogs that have links to mine … etc… and specially to the visitors. I can’t forget the people (some already are friends) who become regular visitors and leave their comments. Thankx a lot!
The challenge now is to keep Nothingandall alive until the next 1.600.000 visitor!

Sonnet – Carlos de Oliveira

Filed under: Carlos de Oliveira,poetry,sitemeter,technorati — looking4good @ 3:56 pm

I’m accused of being bitter, inclined
to despair, as if my poetry’s pain
weren’t your flesh, O scattered men,
and my sorrow your sorrow, O mind.

Beauty? One day I will sing of it,
when the light I don’t disbelieve in falls
on the dark that hems us in like a wall
and you reach, O joy, your kingdom.

In the meantime let me speak:
let sadness be the revenge I drink
until the wall cracks and the night bursts.

My voice of death is the voice of struggle:
those who, trusting, delve into their suffering,
have a hope whose glory is of higher worth.

Translation from Portuguese by Richard Zenith

Carlos de Oliveira (n. em Belém do Pará, Brazil em 1921; m. em Lisboa a 1 Jul 1981)
