Dança / Eugénio de Andrade

Eram a delicadeza, a graça.
Mas também a fúria
da gataria ardendo nos telhados.

São jovens e dançam – formosos
como as dunas, os trigos, os cavalos.

Dance / Eugénio de Andrade

They are lithesome, full of grace.
Ferocious, too,
like a bunch of burning rooftop cats.

They are young and they are dancing – as beautiful
as dunes, wheat, mustangs.
