Alphabe Thursday … Z is for Zelando

November 5, 2015

Zelando o solo ele da

No mais longínquo sertão

A terra se torna fértil

Para quaiquer plantação

Com abundância da água

conclima do nosso chão


Ensuring the soil of it

In the far hinterland

The land becomes fertile

Any extra for planting

With plenty of water

on the surface of the land.
I understand little of this last verse in my Dicionario Brasileiro de literatura de cordel … happy days

alphabet thursday

      Hinterland, though okay now in English, has a German origin.
      Your poem portrays hope, generally the best agricultural land sort of hides, away from the coasts. Typically in the river valleys and surrounding plains. I think of Armageddon area of Israel, it is often called the ‘bread basket.’

    It’s an interesting passage. To me, it sounds like the writer appreciates that farming is being done.

      No you are right … happily I am in a kind environment Unfortunately, ‘Y’ doesn’t feature in the Portuguese alphabet so shall have to be reliant on inventiveness!! Love to Betty and yours xx
