Poems From The Portuguese

the child counted twenty three lambs

the child counted twenty three lambs

the child counted twenty three lambs, covered in soft wool, in order
to be less cold as she remembered her mother knitting
baby-pink booties.

© Translated by Ana Hudson, 2012

a criança contou vinte e três carneirinhos

a criança contou vinte e três carneirinhos, cobertos de lã macia, para
sentir menos frio a lembrar-se da mãe a tricotar umas botas de dormir
cor de rosa bebé.

in Nunca se Regressa ao Mesmo Lugar, 2003
