um homem • uma mulher

I’m learning Portuguese. I’d like to someday visit Brazil.

 

I.

Um homem,

a man steps onto

a beach, where sand dollars

roll in on waves, asking

which does he value:

 

Um homem,

a man must choose

between animal

or gold

 

II.

Uma mulher,

a woman watches

um homem stepping

onto a beach, observing his

choice from the mulberry trees
