Meditação (English: Meditation) is a discontinued series of prose poems written by Brazilian poet Gonçalves Dias. Written c. 1850, it was published serially in the magazine Guanabara, who was founded by him, alongside other Brazilian writers, Joaquim Manuel de Macedo and Manuel de Araújo Porto-Alegre.

The work criticizes the situation of Brazil during the 19th century, under the form of a dialogue between an old man and a young man, who represent, respectively, the critic and the exaltation.
