Jubilant cherry


Cherry season is here! Just look at this jubilant gorgeous cherry!                                     “Strawberries, cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things(…)”  ♪                                                                                                               Nancy Sinatra – Summer Wine 



Oh tangerine, oh tangerine




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.


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)
