Há poemas que caem das árvores como frutos maduros / There are poems falling from the trees


Sue Shanahan


Este foi o que caiu no meu colo:


Loss And Gain


When I compare
What I have lost with what I have gained,
What I have missed with what attained,
Little room do I find for pride.


I am aware
How many days have been idly spent;
How like an arrow the good intent
Has fallen short or been turned aside.


But who shall dare
To measure loss and gain in this wise?
Defeat may be victory in disguise;
The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.



Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, "Loss And Gain"
