Flor de Maricá – Augusto Meyer

Filed under: Augusto Meyer,poesia — looking4good @ 12:27 am

Flor de Maricá daqui

Este perfume tão fino
é a saudade de um perfume
e parece que resume
o amor de um poeta menino.
Era um doce desatino
era este mesmo perfume
e em meu peito um vivo lume,
um nome, um segredo, um hino!
Mas onde estás, poeta louro?
E onde está o teu tesouro
de amor, de mágoa e queixume?
De tudo aquilo, ficou-me
o vago aroma de um nome
e a saudade de um perfume.

Augusto Meyer (n. em Porto Alegre, 24 Jan. 1902 — m. no Rio de Janeiro a 10 Jul 1970)
