Saudade is one of those inexpressible words, Portuguese in this case. The clearest meaning or definition I can come up with is 'melancholic nostalgia' or the like. This is my attempt to take that thought one step further.
The poem is best read by first reading the non-italicised stanzas, followed by the italicised ones.
