About the poet.
Pencil and Ink.
In the drawing, the poet Fernando Pessoa and a little piece of his poem “The Keeper of Flocks” in the original language, the portuguese. And here in english:
“When I look, I see clear as a sunflower.
I’m always walking the roads
Looking right and left,
And sometimes looking behind …
And what I see every second
Is something I’ve never seen before,
And I know how to do this very well …
I know how to hold the astonishment
A child would have if it could really see
It was being born when it was being born …
I feel myself being born in each moment,
In the eternal newness of the world …”
Caeiro, 1914 (a heteronym)
