I'm thinking,

Portuguese -> Literal Translation (i.e., Google) -> Joaoglish -> English.

We can skip Fanglish and Jean-Pol Putainglish.

I can get some stuff in english ,translate by google, make up portuguese from portugal, bring back with the help of fangio, and voillá.

Eu também já fui poesia -
disse a rosa seca e esquecida -
Meu poeta sempre fazia
poemas chamando-me de querida,

Usou-me na lapela,
fomos em todas as rodas sociais:
fez-me sentir tão bela,
invejada pelos outros casais.

Bastou chegar o Outono
para trocar o amor pela pena,
Quis dar-me outro dono
e beijou feito uma brisa amena.

Quase que passou por mim,
sem ver que coberta pela lama,
compartilho o mesmo fim
de toda perdida rosa que ama.

Only understood bits and parts (and had to rely on google translate for the rest), but that sounded wonderful..

Oh le le, oh la la.. Ser del Barça es, el millor que hi ha!!

I was once poetry -
said the rose dry and forgotten -
My poet, always did
poems calling me darling

He used me in his lapel,
were in all social circles:
made me feel so beautiful,
envied by other couples.

Just get the autumn
to share the love of pity,
I wanted to give me another owner
kissed and made ​​a calm wind.

Almost passed me by,
without seeing it covered in mud,
share the same purpose
all lost loves pink.

Here lies
Mrkela
2008-2015
Until the day break,
and the shadows flee away

Storytelling


They laid beside the fire,
Three of them, beside the fire.
The daughter asked: tell us a story,
So did the mother: tell us a story.
The father held them both in his arms,
Gazed at the cotton fields of far farms:


“once there was a ballerina,
Little like…”
“…my hands?”
“Yes, your hands. From the city of Medina
And amid the…”
“ …desert’s sands!”
“desert sands, but, my blood, don’t talk or sing”,
he petted her face, “there was an oasis and a spring.


Her chest waved with a compelling desire
Every night awaken, humming like a lyre:
They call me the Bright Butterfly when I dance
But, O Lord, when I will have the chance
To praise your creation with my own creation?,
And she was beautiful, did I mention?”


“More than mommy?”, asked the daughter
And he looked down to his love
Knowing that innocent question hid a danger
He continued: “She wanted to dance above…”
“Yes or no”, his wife with a gentle squeeze
asked, her voice low and soft like a breeze.


“…above the surface of the lake, like a shade
Lightly like the wind, as the stars fade:
I need the freedom to spin like a whirlwind:
Reward me, my Lord… I only speak my mind,
Grant me my wish and I will make you proud,
She said and started to spin swiftly around.”


“then from the ground…”
“…daddy?

“Yes, sweetheart, what do you want?”
“Is it an horror story? And mommy is sad…”
“of course your mom is prettier, don’t I say it every instant?”
“She wants more.”
“Can I do after the story?”
With a kiss on the cheek, the mother said: “I also want more.”


“From the ground came an imp,
Her pretty face turned white, her red lips limp:
I can give what you want, give me your heart
And I will help you to achieve your dream. Do your part,
Do not forget I am also his agent,
I would not exist without his consent.”


“Oh, daddy, no. Lies”, she covered her ears
And he laughed: “Of course he is not honest,
But those devils play with our worst fears
So you better listen, or this little pest
Shall find a way to scare you at night.
Hear until the end and you shall know how to fight!”


“No daddy, I know it well! It is the dried wheel
Where all travelers that we meet tell
about a ghost of a beautiful woman dancing
Where once there was a spring,
And she cries! All the time! It is creepy! I am afraid!
Why nobody came to the girl’s aid?”


“But who said He didn’t?”
“She is a ghost!”
He looked at her trembling lips, watered eyes…
Then the mother said : “Things weren’t lost,
The travelers are not telling the truth...”
“…lies?”
“No, they just do not know the answer
When the imp moved near the dancer.”


“What?”
“No true artist will accept to make his art vile
Your touch will burn all I like and turn into a trash pile,
I may not have my desire, but I will not give to you
So, now you can part, find a perky woman to woo.
And the ground opened, devouring the foul rascal
Leaving behind a cloud of sulfur after his fall.”


“Tell husband, what is the ghost they all see?”
“The ghost?”
“Yes, the bright spirit!”
“Oh, the foolish travelers, they all flee
from a butterfly and her sacred rite!
As a reward she was allowed to stay
And she dances as she wanted until today.”


They looked down to his lap
Where the little girl was having a nap
The story went too long,
There was not a little song,
The child slept beside the fire…
The adults still kissing beside the same fire.

Firdy, you really need to fix it. You are getting the wrong signals again. And sending them to bill.
