„Since it gives me so much bliss
to give you everything I can
The more I pay you, the more I owe.“

Quoted by Elizabeth Bishop in the dedication of Questions of Travel (1965) to Lota de Macedo Soares, her Brazilian lover.
Lyric poetry, Não pode tirar-me as esperanças, Quem vê, Senhora, claro e manifesto


Porque é tamanha bem-aventurança o dar-vos quanto tenho e quanto posso, quanto mais vos pago, mais vos devo.

Lyric poetry, Não pode tirar-me as esperanças, Quem vê, Senhora, claro e manifesto
