Flaming Star

by Antonio Gil October. 28, 2011 8363 views

To be a poet is to be taller, to be bigger
Than average men! It is to bite as if you’re kissing!
It is to give alms, although you are a beggar,
Like the king of a realm where only pain is missing!
…………………………..
It is to have inside yourself a flaming star,
To have the condor's mighty claw and wing!
…………………………..
To be hungry and thirsty for the sky!
…………………………..
To condense the world into one lonely cry!

Excerpt of a poem by Florbela Espanca

Florbela Espanca is a portuguese poetess born in 1894. Precursor of the feminist movement in Portugal, she had a tumultuous and eventful life that shaped her erotic and feminine writings.
