These be
Three silent things:
The falling snow… the hour
Before the dawn… the mouth of one
Just dead.


São três
Coisas silenciosas:
A neve que cai… a hora
Antes da alva… a boca de alguém
Que acabou de morrer

Trad. Manuel Bandeira

Adelaide Crapsey (b. Brooklyn, New York, United States, September 9, 1878 – d. Rochester, New York, United States, October 8, 1914.
