Adriano Nunes: “From Fortune"

“From Fortune"

Do not fool yourself,
Great Dante!
Fortune gives and takes,
As before,
Without any measure.

Do not deceive yourself,
Dear Homer!
Fortune changes
To the side that she only wants.
What a slippery divinity!

Do not be angry,
Good Cervantes!
Fortune is always friend 
Of instantaneous chances and 
She risks everything.

Do not be impatient,
Master Milton,
With the Wheel
Of Fortune which just gyrates 
For itself!

And you, bard Adriano,
See: what a strange fact!
Are you sad?
From the ashes of cruel surprises,
As a Phoenix, rise!

Adriano Nunes
