A lágrima que por engano
Entristece o campo
Acampados a levantar
E mais um desencanto.
No peito me dói a mágoa
De viver sempre a esperar
Uma terra que seja minha
Para que eu possa plantar.
É o choro no bretes
No fio das madrugadas
Enquanto a semente palavra
Não germinar!
Haverá em outras querências
Campos sem plantação
Com tanta gente que sonha
Em ter o trigo nas mãos.
Vamos clamar companheiro!
Com o operário e o peão
Germinar a paz nos versos
E a igualdade no coração!
