“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller

Oh tangerine, oh tangerine

Tangerine

Dinnertime

FRUIT

Peaches, pears, oranges,
strawberries, cherries, figs,
apples, melon, watermelon,
oh, music of my senses,
pure pleasure of the tongue;
let me speak now
of a fruit that fascinates me,
with the flavour, with the hues,
with the fragrance of its syllables:
oh tangerine, oh tangerine.

FRUTOS

Pêssegos, peras, laranjas,
morangos, cerejas, figos,
maçãs, melão, melancia,
ó música de meus sentidos,
pura delícia da língua;
deixai-me agora falar
do fruto que me fascina,
pelo sabor, pela cor,
pelo aroma das sílabas:
tangerina, tangerina.

Eugénio de Andrade, Portuguese poet (1923-2005)
