DPF / Drummond de Andrade

For grace, from the FSG book of Twentieth-Century Latin American Poetry, edited by Ilan Stavans.

from The Disappearance of Luisa Porto / by Carlos Drummond de Andrade, translated by Thomas Colchie

No more searching. Silence the radios.
The calm of petals opening
in a blue garden
where hearts are unburdened
