Edwin Arlington Robinson - Richard Corey

Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
We people on the pavement looked at him:
He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
Clean favored, and imperially slim.


Edwin Arlington Robinson - Richard Corey - Poema

Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
We people on the pavement looked at him:
He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
Clean favored, and imperially slim.

And he was always quietly arrayed,
And he was always human when he talked;
But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
Good-morning, and he glittered when he walked.

And he was rich—yes, richer than a king—
And admirably schooled in every grace:
In fine, we thought that he was everything
To make us wish that we were in his place.

So on we worked, and waited for the light,
And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;
And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
Went home and put a bullet through his head.






Edwin Arlington Robinson - Richard Corey - Poema - Tradução em Português

Sempre que Richard Cory descia a cidade,
Nós, pessoas na calçada, olhamos para ele:
Ele era um cavalheiro de sola a coroa
Limpo favorecido e imperialmente magro.

E ele estava sempre em silêncio,
E ele sempre foi humano quando falou;
Mas ainda assim ele vibrou pulsos quando ele disse:
Bom dia, e ele brilhou quando ele andou.

E ele era rico - sim, mais rico que um rei -
E admiravelmente educado em toda graça:
Em suma, pensamos que ele era tudo
Para nos fazer desejar que estivéssemos no lugar dele.

Então, nós trabalhamos e esperamos pela luz,
E ficou sem a carne e amaldiçoou o pão;
E Richard Cory, uma calma noite de verão
Fui para casa e coloquei uma bala na cabeça dele.
