Spring Cowardice - Leonora Speyer

I am afraid to go into the woods,
I fear the trees and their mad, green moods.

I fear the breezes that pull at my sleeves,


Spring Cowardice - Leonora Speyer - Poema

I am afraid to go into the woods,
I fear the trees and their mad, green moods.

I fear the breezes that pull at my sleeves,
The creeping arbutus beneath the leaves,

And the brook that mocks me with wild, wet words:
I stumble and fall at the voice of birds.

Think of the terror of those swift showers,
Think of the meadows of fierce-eyed flowers:

And the little things with sudden wings
That buzz about me and dash and dart,
And the lilac waiting to break my heart!

Winter, hide me in your kind snow,
I am a coward, a coward, I know!





Spring Cowardice - Leonora Speyer - Poema - Tradução em Português

Eu tenho medo de ir para a floresta
Temo as árvores e seus humores loucos e verdes.

Eu temo a brisa que puxa minhas mangas,
O medronho rastejando sob as folhas,

E o riacho que zomba de mim com palavras selvagens e molhadas:
Eu tropeço e caio na voz dos pássaros.

Pense no terror daqueles chuvas rápidas,
Pense nos prados de flores de olhos fortes:

E as pequenas coisas com asas repentinas
Que zumbido sobre mim e traço e dardo,
E o lilás esperando para partir meu coração!

Inverno, esconda-me na sua neve amável
Eu sou um covarde, um covarde, eu sei!
