Love is the Earth's whisper
after the stars fade
and the winds of dawn blow
the birth of the day...
The sincere laugh,
the shiny joy
of the lips, the sources
and the wave that balances
the sea...Love is the memory
that time can not kill,
the well-loved song
happy and absurd...It is the unheard music...The silence that shakes
and seems to fill
a shivering heart
when the melody
of a bird song
wants to remain within...

Love is God in fullness,
the infinite extent
of  the gifts that come
with the sun and the rain,
whether in the mountains,
whether in the fields;
it is the rain that falls
and the treasure stored
at the end of the rainbow.

by Vinicius de Moraes

1913-1980

Vinícius de Moraes (October 19, 1913 - July 9, 1980,) Born Marcus Vinícius da Cruz de Mello Moraes in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His father, a scholar and poet, named Vinícius after a character in Henryk Sienkiewicz's historical novel Quo Vadis. Born into a family that loved books and music, Vinícius pursued both fields and was an instrumental figure in modern Brazilian music. As a poet, he wrote lyrics for songs, which have become classics.https://allpoetry.com/Vinicius-de-Moraes

A você, com amor

O amor é o murmúrio da terra
quando as estrelas se apagam
e os ventos da aurora vagam
no nascimento do dia...
O ridente abandono,
a rútila alegria
dos lábios, da fonte
e da onda que arremete
do mar...O amor é a memória
que o tempo não mata,
a canção bem-amada
feliz e absurda...E a música inaudível...O silêncio que treme
e parece ocupar
o coração que freme
quando a melodia
do canto de um pássaro
parece ficar...

O amor é Deus em plenitude
a infinita medida
das dádivas que vêm
com o sol e com a chuva
seja na montanha
seja na planura
a chuva que corre
e o tesouro armazenado
no fim do arco-íris.
