A Cigarra feliz














A cigarra e as formigas, da Editora Lello & Irmão. Sempre me enterneceu esta versão da Cigarra e da Formiga, a imagem da pobre desfalecida a ser alimentada pelas formigas, num acto de generosidade e depois, agradecida, pegar no violino e tocar para todas elas... Quem me dera ser formiga capaz de arrecadar e cigarra feliz a cantar...

The grasshopper and the ants, of the publisher Lello & Brother. It always moved me, this version of the story, the image of the poor, faint grasshopper, being fed by the ants, in an act of generosity and then, gratefully pick up the violin and play for them all. I wish I was a collectable ant and a grasshopper happilly singing...
