This is my fateES--domingos-martins-pedra-

Perhaps it is better this way

I’ll have to leave thee, my State

But I know I’ll return someday


I know I’ll miss thee

And some other land will know

That shall I a different site see

The memory of it will go.

If I follow the course of your greatest river,

Even if it flowed onto strange ground,

The memory of thee would be greater

Than the most beautiful land to be found


by José Ruy Pimentel de Castro
