  1. O muro de basalto caiado
    a meio corpo. As redes
    vermelhao seco
    sob a queimada erva de
    agosto.

    O mar quebra
    na cinzenta parede da casa.

    O sótao corrido
    sob o travejamento do telhado.

    O milho depois de colhido
    fica sofrendo o ténue calor de setembro.

    A grande árvore negra.

    (Joao Miguel Fernandes Jorge. Terra nostra, 1992)
