Alphabe Thursday … V is for Vemos (we see)

October 15, 2015

Vemos tudos de primeira

Das aves aos animais

De domesticaos e selvagens

E milhões de vegetais

Potenciais de riquezas

Nas ervas medicinais


We see everything first

From birds to animals

Domestic and wild

And millions of plants

Potential wealth

In medicinal herbs


As the alphabet in the world of the Dicionario Brasileiro de literatura de cordel comes to a close, the poet reminds us that his country has botanical wealth beyond measure.  Brazil is a new country and it doesn’t seem so long ago when a mother would care for her family using remedies from the trees and flowers.  

Not voodoo or witchcraft; but sensible and practical measures to prevent or cure illness.

    I wonder what other places on our world once had botanical riches as the tropical forests of Brazil.
