Long Description:
Quote by Fernando Pessoa,probably the most important Portuguese Poet after Camoens.
The quote is at the pedestal of a sculpture by Lagoa Henriques called "O Segredo" (The Secret) and it´s about secrets.

"DEIXA-ME OUVIR o que não ouço...
Não é a brisa ou o arvoredo;
É outra coisa intercalada...

É qualquer coisa que não posso
Ouvir senão em segredo,
E que talvez não seja nada..."


-English
"LET ME HEAR what I can´t hear...
It is not the breeze or the grove;
It is something else interleaved...

It is something that can not
listen but in secret,
And that may be nothing ..."
Address:
Jardim Amália Rodirigues Lisboa
