  • Gonalves Dias: Cano do exlio (julho 1843) Minha terra tem palmeiras Onde canta o Sabi; As aves, que aqui gorjeiam, No gorjeiam como l. Nosso cu tem mais estrelas, Nossas vrzeas tm mais flores Nossos bosques tm mais vida, Nossa vida mais amores No permita Deus que eu morra, Sem que eu volte para l; Sem que desfrute os primores Que no encontro por c; Sem quinda aviste as palmeiras, Onde canta o Sabi. My land has palm trees Where the thrush sings. The birds that sing in here Do not sing as they do there. Our skies have more stars, Our valleys have more flowers. Our forests have more life, Our lives have more loves. May God never allow That I die before I return; That I do not see the beauties That I cannot find in here; That I do not see the palm trees Where the thrush sings.
