Ou de como uma pobre órfã vai viver para casa dos tios com três filhos, namora, apaixona-se e quase casa com cada um dos três primos,  acaba casada com o tio (já viúvo, claro), e fica virgem.


Coisas sérias

“Those who deliberately seek to deprive others of the opportunity to make the best of their abilities and overcome their circumstances are evil beyond belief.”



Dórdio Gomes, Dois Banhistas à Beira do Douro, 1928

Dórdio Gomes

But my true love’s a rover!

OH, Prue she has a patient man,
And Joan a gentle lover,
And Agatha’s Arth’ is a hug-the-hearth—
But my true love’s a rover!

Mig her man’s as good as cheese
And honest as a briar;
Sue tells her love what he’s thinking of—
But my dear lad’s a liar!

Oh, Sue and Prue and Agatha
Are thick with Mig and Joan!
They bite their threads and shake their heads,
And gnaw my name like a bone!

And Prue says, “Mine’s a patient man,
As never snaps me up;”
And Agatha, “Arth’ is a hug-the-hearth,
Could live content in a cup;”

Sue’s man’s mind is like good jell—
All one color, and clear—
And Mig’s no call to think at all
What’s to come next year;

While Joan makes boast of a gentle lad,
That’s troubled with that and this;—
But they all would give the life they live
For a look from the man I kiss!

Cold he slants his eyes about,
And few enough’s his choice,—
Though he’d slip me clean for a nun or a queen,
Or a beggar with knots in her voice,—

And Agatha will turn awake
When her good man sleeps sound,
And Mig and Sue and Joan and Prue
Will hear the clock strike round.

For Prue she has a patient man
As asks not when or why;
And Mig and Sue have naught to do
But peep who’s passing by;

Joan is paired with a putterer
That bastes and tastes and salts;
And Agatha’s Arth’ is a hug-the-hearth,—
But my true love is false!
