O Nome das Coisas (1977)Edit

 
This is the dawn I waited for
The new day clean and whole
When we emerge from night and silence
To freely inhabit the substance of time
  • Esta é a madrugada que eu esperava
    O dia inicial inteiro e limpo
    Onde emergimos da noite e do silêncio
    E livres habitamos a substância do tempo
    • This is the dawn I waited for
      The new day clean and whole
      When we emerge from night and silence
      To freely inhabit the substance of time
    • "25 de Abril" ("25th April 1974"), in Log Book: Selected Poems, trans. ‎Richard Zenith (Carcanet, 1997), p. 78
