IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD by Carlos Drummond de Andrade

Stones

In the middle of the road there was a stone.

there was a stone in the middle of the road

there was a stone

in the middle of the road there was a stone.

Never should I forget this milestone
in the life of my wearied retinas.
Never should I forget that in the middle of the road
there was a stone
there was a stone in the middle of the road
in the middle of the road there was a stone.

Translated by Heloisa Prieto

My thanks to the Executors Carlos  Drummond de Andrade’s estate.
