A lenda da Lagoa das Furnas

 

Há muito, muito tempo, no local onde se encontra atualmente a Lagoa das Furnas, existia uma pequena aldeia onde se vivia sem guerras e sem brigas, sem invejas e sem ódios e onde não faltava nunca a ninguém alegria e pão em cima da mesa.
Sua gente era trabalhadora, abençoada com terra fértil e rica de águas, havia festa permanente e o tempo rolava lentamente.

Lagoa das Furnas

Certa manhã, como de costume, um rapaz dali, saiu de sua casa com o cântaro para ir à fonte buscar água fresca. Mas quando lá chegou foi surpreendido por algo desagradável.  A água que outrora era pura e limpa, estava agora salgada e intragável.

Espantado e assustado, correu por toda a aldeia a dar o alarme a todos os habitantes de tal acontecimento. Mas como a zona era rica em águas boas, ninguém lhe prestou atenção.

Uns dias depois, ganhou coragem para voltar à fonte... foi inacreditável ao que assistiu, da pequena bacia de água que se formava à saída da nascente, os peixes saltavam e caiam mortos em terra.

O rapaz voltou a correr para a aldeia, gritando apavorado, mas nem assim os habitantes acreditaram, continuando a viver com a alegria do costume.

Só o avô do jovem o acudiu. Aterrado com aquela visão, gritou, gritou, aconselhando aquelas gentes a subir aos montes para verificar se haveria sinal de novas terras no horizonte.

Infelizmente, mais uma vez ninguém deu importância. Só o rapaz e o velho subiram aos montes, e subiram tão alto até que chegaram aos cumes. Quando lá chegaram avistaram uma nova ilha entre as brumas e névoas do horizonte. Logo desceram a toda a pressa, incitando os aldeões a fugir já que tinha emergido do mar a Ilha Encantada das Sete Cidades, sinal que fazia prever terríveis mudanças.
Mas eles ignoraram-nos, continuando na folia de sempre.

O velho e o neto, assustados a valer, pegaram no seu gado e fizeram rumo a uma povoação vizinha, onde o esperavam vender. Ficaram por lá um tempo, até que sem novidades decidiram regressar à sua velha aldeia.

Porém, quando lá chegaram algo mudara. Onde antes existiam vales, havia agora montanhas. Os montes foram todos arrasados e a aldeia, nem vê-la. Tudo fora soterrado!

No local, uma nova lagoa de águas límpidas borbulhava debaixo do sol. Hoje é a chamada de Lagoa das Furnas.

Desde então, o povo acredita que os aldeões continuam a viver debaixo e em volta da Lagoa, invisíveis e felizes, sem guerras e sem brigas, sem invejas e sem ódios e onde não falta alegria e amor. Ainda há quem acredite que continuam a cozinhar...

Deles, só vemos as bolhas de gás vulcânico e os fogos fátuos.

The legend of the Lagoa das Furnas

 

A long, long time ago, in the place where the Furnas Lagoon is now, there was a small village where there was no war and no quarrels, no envy and no hatred and where there was no lack of joy and bread on the table.

 

His people were hardworking, blessed with fertile land and rich in water, there was a permanent feast and time rolled slowly.

Lagoa das Furnas

 

One morning, as usual, a boy from there came out of his house with a pitcher to go to the fountain for fresh water. But when he got there he was surprised by something unpleasant. The water that was once pure and clean was now salty and unpalatable.

Amazed and frightened, he ran throughout the village to warn all the inhabitants of such an event. But because the area was rich in good water, no one paid attention to it.

A few days later, he got the courage to return to the fountain... it was unbelievable what he saw, of the small basin of water that formed at the exit of the nascent one, the fish jumped and fell dead in the land.

The boy ran back to the village, screaming terrified, but still the inhabitants believed, continuing to live with the joy of the custom.

Only the young man’s grandfather helped him. Terrified by that vision, he cried, shouted, advising those people to go up to the hills to see if there would be any sign of new lands on the horizon.

Unfortunately, once again no one gave a damn. Only the boy and the old man climbed the hills, and climbed so high until they reached the peaks. When they arrived there they spotted a new island amidst the mists and mists of the horizon. Soon they came down in all haste, urging the villagers to flee since the Enchanted Island of the Seven Cities had emerged from the sea, a sign that predicted terrible changes.

But they ignored us, continuing the usual revelry.

The old man and his grandson, frightened to death, took their cattle and headed for a neighboring village, where they hoped to sell them. They stayed there for a while, until no news decided to return to their old village.

But when they got there something had changed. Where before there were valleys, there were now mountains. Mountains were all razed and the village, not even seeing it. It was all buried!

On site, a new lagoon of clear waters bubbled under the sun. Today it is called Furnas Lagoon.

Since then, the people believe that the villagers continue to live under and around the Lagoon, invisible and happy, without wars and fights, without envy and without hatreds and where there is no lack of joy and love. There are still those who believe they continue to cook...

All we see from them are volcanic gas bubbles and flares.
