Excerpt

a,
Irado, o Gama, então lhe perguntava:
«Quando elle a mortes cem desafiava,
Quem é que uma só morte ali temia?»

LXXIII

E o mór peso tomando do seu cargo,
Em vendo levantar-se a maior guerra,
Quando a gente dizia: A terra! a terra!..
Gritava-lhes o Gama: Ao largo! ao largo!..

LXXIV

Hão de ver, o que o mundo nunca vira:
Surgir do mar a India abençoada,
Acenando, de longe, á lusa armada,
Em torres de esmeralda e de saphyra!

LXXV

Ou, então, enjeitados pela Gloria,
Figurarem, terriveis e sombrios,
Como espectros, no templo da memoria,
Eternamente, os homens e os navios!

LXXVI

Á nova Terra Santa! em frente! em frente!
Romeiros da romagem longa e vaga!
Ah! Deus vos mostre a India refulgente!
Deus vos leve, romeiros, Deus vos traga!

Author of the Day

Alan Joshua
As a clinical psychologist and parapsychologist, Alan Joshua is fascinated with the human mind and everything that makes it tick. He combined his extensive knowledge with his passion for sci-fi in his action-packed fiction trilogy The SHIVA Syndrome, which has received rave reviews and has already been nominated for several awards. As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
