Um Poema Bonitinho

One Art

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

---Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied. It's evident
the art of losing's not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

Elizabeth Bishop

Bonitinho é quando criança faz arte e a vó diz: ói que bunitinho.
Esse poema é lindo. Mas enfim.

The art of losing may be hard to master, when you suddenly lose your vesture, when it hurts like true disaster, when you can't control the fluster, when it burns like a sore blister, when it makes you lose your posture. But when you laugh at the the dream buster and welcome the jolly Jester, the art of losing ain't so hard to master; it's really no disaster, but write it and it will glister! Your cute verse is a tongue twister.

Duro é aprender o ofício da arte de aceitar as perdas...

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
