Manoel Bandeira – Nu


Se nua, teus olhos
Ficam nus também:
Teu olhar, mais longe,
Mais lento, mais líquido.

Então, dentro deles,
Bóio, nado, salto
Baixo num mergulho

Baixo até o mais fundo
De teu ser, lá onde
Me sorri tu’alma
Nua, nua, nua…


When naked, your eyes
Become naked also:
Your gaze lingers longer,
Slower, more liquid.

Then, within those eyes,
I float, swim, jump,
Lower in a perpendicular

I dive to the depths
Of your being, there where
Your soul smiles at me,
Naked, naked, naked.
