Poem I am the fruit of a tree from the book "I sing Amazon Forest" by M. Theophilo

I am stone and I live in every corner

I am a bird an I do not know the winter

I am alive and want them to know it
the rain's dampers, the heat and the wind's freshness

I am air, water and I come from the bowels of the earth.

I am the fruit of a tree.


Márcia Theóphilo, 1976
