Alphabe Thursday … S is for Sou is a gentle patriot
Sou patriotic e gentil
Temos tudo em nossa
Desde os ricos pantanais
Ao pico da alta serra
país que não tem deserto
Ciclone, vulcão nem guerra
The poet is a gentle patriot; he celebrates the rich wetlands at the peak of the High Sierra.
He has everything he needs and is without cyclone, vulcano or war. He is pleased with his lot.
It is sad that the deforestation and other environmental abuses are not such a pretty poem. The over population on the sides of mountains around Rio and the torrential have been the cause of landslides recently.
