For my father

Paul Potts

I  think a time will come when you will understand
That I wass forced to try and fly and learn to sing
And the because I fell, echoless, between dark rocks
Is of itself no proof that if I had not run away
I would have grown strong and added to
The long tradition of you and your quiet sires.
Remember too, that this emigrating is of itself
Part of your own long silent heritage.
Else, how sir, did you come to be American?

Acho que chegará o momento em que você vai entender
que fui forçado a tentar e voar e a aprender a cantar
e porque caí, sem eco, entre rochas escuras
não é por si prova de que se eu não tivesse fugido
teria crescido forte e contribuído para
a sua longa tradição e aos seus discretos progenitores.
Lembre-se, também, de que esta emigração é ela mesma
parte de sua longa herança.
De que outro modo, então, o senhor chegou a ser americano?

Paul Potts. Poeta inglês (1911-1990).  Confira uma belíssima tradução ao espanhol em "La Biblioteca de Marcelo Leites"

[url=]canada goose online[/url] The songs are sequenced first, and are actually a nice bunch of alternate rock and pop tunes by new, up-and-coming pop stars like Miley Cyrus (a terrific, anthemic country-pop styled opener), Hayden Panettiere, Annasophia Robb, as well as more recognizable names like Jeremy Camp, Everlife, Bethany Dillon, Sixpence None The Richer Leigh Nash (duet with Tyler James) - mostly in contemporary Disney-pop style of positive, tuneful rock (most of the artists are from contemporary Christian music, although the songs are not overtly religious or spiritual ones).
