Descalça vai para a fonte

Language: Portuguese (Português)

Descalça vai para a fonte
Descalça vai para a fonte leonor pela verdura;
Vai formosa e não segura.
Leva na cabeça o pote,
O texto nas mãos de prata,
Cinta de fina escarlata.
Sainho de chamalote;
Traz a vasquinha de cote.
Mais branca que a neve pura;
Vai formosa e não segura.
Descobre a touca a garganta,
Cabelos de ouro o trançado,
Fita de cõr de encarnado,
Tão linda que o mundo espanta;
Chove nela graça tanta
Que dá graça a formesura;
Vai formosa e não segura.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
