OLAVO BILAC (1865 – 1918 )

one of Brazil’s most popular poets; a master of polished and gemlike verses
Welcome to the wonderful world of Brazilian literary tradition. Enjoy a recitation BY ME of a nature-inspired piece “Velhas árvores” (Old Trees)


Velhas árvores

Olha estas velhas árvores, mais belas
Do que as árvores novas, mais amigas:
Tanto mais belas quanto mais antigas,
Vencedoras da idade e das procelas…

O homem, a fera, e o inseto, à sombra delas
Vivem, livres de fomes e fadigas;
E em seus galhos abrigam-se as cantigas
E os amores das aves tagarelas.

Não choremos, amigo, a mocidade!
Envelheçamos rindo! envelheçamos
Como as árvores fortes envelhecem:

Na glória da alegria e da bondade,
Agasalhando os pássaros nos ramos,
Dando sombra e consolo aos que padecem!

Think Leo diCaprio meets denzel washington. His ability to convey raw emotion and seemingly natural sense of charisma draws me to him. congrats to him on his recent golden globe nomination for best actor in a TV series (drama)
