The Poet: Manuel Bandeira, "Be Like A River"


“Be like a river that flows
Silent in the middle of the night
Not fearing the dark of the night,
Reflecting any star that is in the sky.
And if the sky fills with clouds,
Clouds are water, like the river, so
Reflect them too with no regret In the silent depth.”

- Manuel Bandeira, Brazilian poet
