POOR OLD MUSIC

 

The poet spoke and people heard him attentively

The poet spoke and people used to hear him attentively

The poet spoke and people used to hear him with some attention

The poet spoke and people sometimes heard him with some attention

The poet spoke and some people heard him with some attention

The poet spoke but people rarely heard him with any attention

The poet spoke and people heard him without any attention

The poet spoke and people didn’t hear him anymore

The poet spoke and people just looked at him without hearing

The poet barely speaks and people just yawn in boredom

POBRE VELHA MÚSICA

 
O poeta falava e as pessoas o ouviam atentamente
 
O poeta falava e as pessoas costumavam ouvi-lo atentamente
 
O poeta falava e as pessoas costumavam ouvi-lo com alguma atenção
 
O poeta falava e as pessoas às vezes o ouviam com alguma atenção
 
O poeta falava e algumas pessoas o ouviam com alguma atenção
 
O poeta falava mas raras pessoas o ouviam com alguma atenção
 
O poeta falava e as pessoas o ouviam sem atenção
 
O poeta falava e as pessoas já não o ouviam
 
O poeta falava e as pessoas já o olhavam sem ouvir
 
O poeta mal fala e as pessoas já abrem a boca em fastio
