Poems From The Portuguese

23.

23.

And at the end of my day
the matter of which my life is made
again abandoned
yet again and again abandoned
asks me in silence
if at the going out of light
life will have a beginning.

© Translated by Ana Hudson, 2010

23.

E ao fim do meu dia
a matéria de que se faz a minha vida
de novo abandonada
de novo de novo abandonada
pergunta-me silenciosa
se ao apagar da luz
a vida terá princípio.

in O Livro do Sapateiro, 2010
