Sample text

O de agora, falamos do que está à morte, é o rei Herodes, que sofre, além do mais e pior que se dirá, de uma horrível comichão que o põe às portas da loucura, como se as mandíbulas miudinhas e ferozes de cem mil formigas lhe estivessem roendo o corpo, infatigáveis. Depois de terem experimentado, com nenhumas melhoras, quantos bálsamos se usaram até hoje em todo o orbe conhecido, sem exclusão do Egipto e da Índia, os médicos reais, já de cabeça perdida ou, para ser mais exacto, com medo de perdê-la, lançaram-se a compor banhos e mezinhas ao acaso, misturando em água ou óleo quaisquer ervas ou pós de que alguma vez se tivesse dito algum bem, mesmo sendo contrárias as indicações da farmacopeia.

Simeão ouviu, ouviu, de cabeça baixa, e finalmente respondeu, Estás desculpado. Em troca do seu generoso movimento, era natural que José esperasse uma resposta mais benévola do teimoso velho, e, ainda com a esperança de ouvir palavras que cria merecer, caminhou ao lado dele durante um bom bocado de tempo e de caminho. Mas Simeão, com os olhos postos no pó da estrada, fazia de conta que não dava pela sua presença, até que o carpinteiro, justamente enfadado, esboçou o gesto de quem vai afastar-se.

Por um carreiro sinuoso, em fila, começaram a descer para o vale, onde, no baixo da outra encosta, quase confundida com as pedras que do chão rompiam como fatigados ossos, estava a aldeia de Simeão. José não voltaria a ter notícias dele, apenas, mas muito mais tarde, que tinha morrido antes de recensear-se. Depois das duas noites passadas à luz das estrelas e ao frio do descampado, já que, por medo de um ataque de surpresa, nem fogueiras tinham acendido, soube bem aos de Nazaré poderem acolher-se uma vez mais ao resguardo das paredes e arcadas de um caravançarai.
