Como vai você

Como vai você?
Eu preciso saber da sua vida
Peça a alguém pra me contar sobre o seu dia
Anoiteceu e eu preciso só saber

Como vai você?
Que já modificou a minha vida
Razão de minha paz já esquecida
Nem sei se gosto mais de mim ou de você

Vem, que a sede de te amar me faz melhor
Eu quero amanhecer ao seu redor
Preciso tanto me fazer feliz

Vem, que o tempo pode afastar nós dois
Não deixe tanta vida pra depois
Eu preciso
saber
Como vai você

Roberto Carlos

Hobbes disse...

My heart rouses
thinking to bring you news
of something
that concerns you
and concerns many men. Look at
what passes for the new.
You will not find it there but in
despised poems.
It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there.

Hobbes disse...

Ups... o anterior é um excerto de "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower" de William Carlos Williams.

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower
Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees
Is my destroyer.
And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose
My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.

The force that drives the water through the rocks
Drives my red blood; that dries the mouthing streams
Turns mine to wax.
And I am dumb to mouth unto my veins
How at the mountain spring the same mouth sucks.

The hand that whirls the water in the pool
Stirs the quicksand; that ropes the blowing wind
Hauls my shroud sail.
And I am dumb to tell the hanging man
How of my clay is made the hangman's lime.

The lips of time leech to the fountain head;
Love drips and gathers, but the fallen blood
Shall calm her sores.
And I am dumb to tell a weather's wind
How time has ticked a heaven round the stars.

And I am dumb to tell the lover's tomb
How at my sheet goes the same crooked worm.

"The force that through the green fuse drives the flower" de Dylan Thomas
