Camões: Times change, wills change

Mudam-se os tempos, mudam-se as vontades:


Times change, wills change,
You change your being, you change your trust;
Everyone is made up of change,
Always taking on new qualities.

We continuously see new things,
Different in everything from hope;
Of the bad are the sorrows in remembrance,
And the good, if any, nostalgia.

Time covers the ground with a green mantle,
That was once covered with cold snow,
And finally, it converts the sweet song into tears.

And, apart from this changing each day,
Another change makes me astonished:
That life doe not change as it used to.

-Luís Vaz de Camões
