My Hands Hold the Stars

My Hands Hold the Stars
My hands hold the stars,
I keep my soul to avoid the breaking off
the melody that goes from flower to flower,
I pull the sea from the sea and put it on me
and my heart beat holds the things rhythm.

///

As minhas mãos mantêm as estrelas,
seguro a minha alma para que se não quebre
a melodia que vai de flor em flor,
arranco o mar do mar e ponho-o em mim
e o bater do meu coração sustenta o ritmo das coisas.

by Sophia de Mello BREYNER ANDRESSEN (1919-2004), in "CORAL", 1950

(Portuguese translated by Armando TABORDA, 2014)
