T.S. Eliot (1888-1965)

An Anglo-American Poet

 

 

MORNING AT THE WINDOW

 

“They are rattling breakfast plates in basement kitchens,

And along the trampled edges of the street

I am aware of the damp souls of housemaids

Sprouting despondently at area gates.

 

The brown waves of fog toss up to me

Twisted faces from the bottom of the street,

And tear from a passer-by with muddy skirts

An aimless smile that hovers in the air

And vanishes along the level of the roofs.”

 

 
MANHÃ À JANELA

"Há um tinir de louças de café
Nas cozinhas que os porões abrigam,
E ao longo das bordas pisoteadas da rua
Penso nas almas úmidas das domésticas
Brotando melancólicas nos portões das áreas de serviço.
As ondas castanhas da neblina me arremessam
Retorcidas faces do fundo da rua,
E arrancam de uma passante com saias enlameadas
Um sorriso sem destino que no ar vacila
E se dissipa rente ao nível dos telhados."
