Hi, this is my first topic and I'm newly registered so sorry if anything's wrong here or if it's in the wrong section. I also don't show if I should be writing in english or portuguese so as it's an english learning/teaching website I thought of writing in english...
I recently heard this song made by Caetano Veloso called "Tão Pequeno" and found out the lyrics in it are excerpts of a poem by Luís Vaz de Camões (portuguese poet). And so I chose to post it here hoping someone could write down different versions it can be translated into because after many tries I'm not satisfied with my results.
Here's the lyrics/poem's excerpt:
"Onde pode acolher-se um fraco humano,
Onde tará segura a curta vida,
Que não se arme e se indigne o Céu sereno,
Contra um bicho da terra tão pequeno?"
If you guys want to read the whole poem (it's quite long) here's a link: [url]http://pt.wikisource.org/wiki/Os_Lus%C3%ADadas/I[/url]
If you guys want to hear the song, here's a youtube (licensed) link:
Thank you very much in advance, and sorry if I've done anything wrong posting for the first time.
