I am the fruit of a tree
You are here: Home / I sing Amazon Forest

  • 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
