The Negro Speaks of Rivers by Langston Hughes

Fonte: http:///www.poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/15722

 I've known rivers:
I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the

     flow of human blood in human veins.
My soul has grown deep like the rivers.

 I bathed in the Euphrates when dawns were young.
I built my hut near the Congo and it lulled me to sleep.
I looked upon the Nile and raised the pyramids above it.
I heard the singing of the Mississippi when Abe Lincoln

went down to New Orleans, and I've seen its muddy
bosom turn all golden in the sunset.

I've known rivers:
Ancient, dusky rivers.
My soul has grown deep like the rivers.
