deux poèmes de paul verlaine

Automne, chemin à travers les bois, 1876
Camille Pissarro  


En sourdine

Calmes dans le demi-jour
Que les branches hautes font,
Pénétrons bien notre amour
De ce silence profond.

Fondons nos âmes, nos coeurs
Et nos sens extasiés,
Parmi les vagues langueurs
Des pins et des arbousiers.

Ferme tes yeux à demi,
Croise tes bras sur ton sein,
Et de ton coeur endormi
Chasse à jamais tout dessein.

Laisson-nous persuader
Au souffle berceur et doux
Qui vient à tes pieds rider
Les ondes de gazon roux.

Et quand, solennel, le soir
Des chênes noirs tombera,
Voix de notre désespoir,
Le rossignol chantera.


A la sordina

Sosegados en la media luz
que procuran las altas ramas,
penetremos bien nuestro amor
de este silencio profundo.

Fundamos nuestras almas, nuestros corazones
y nuestros sentidos extasiados,
entre la vaga languidez
de los pinos y los madroños.

Cierra los ojos a medias,
cruza los brazos sobre el pecho,
y de tu corazón adormecido
aleja para siempre todo propósito.

Dejémonos persuadir
al soplo arrollador y dulce
que viene a tus pies a rizar
las olas de hierba roja.

Y cuando, solemne, la noche,
de los robles negros caiga,
voz de nuestra desesperanza,
el ruiseñor cantará.


L’heure exquise

La lune blanche
Luit dans les bois ;
De chaque branche
Part une voix
Sous la ramée...

O bien-aimée.

L’étang reflète,
Profond miroir,
La silhouette
Du saule noir
Où le vent pleure.

Révons, c’est l'heure !

Un vaste et tendre
Apaisement
Semble descendre
Du firmament
Que l’astre irise.

C’est l’heure exquise.


La hora exquisita

La luna blanca
luce en los bosques;
de cada rama
parte una voz
bajo el ramaje...

Oh, bien amada.

El estanque refleja,
profundo espejo,
la silueta
del sauce negro
donde el viento llora.

¡Soñemos, es la hora!

Un vasto y tierno
sosiego
parece descender
del firmamento
que el astro irisa.

Es la hora exquisita.

Simon & Garfunkel: Old Friends, Disc 1


The Sound Of Silence
By Paul Simon

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

Fools, said I
You do not know, silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the signs said
The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whisper'd the sounds of silence

The Atlantic Years


Demasiado corazón (Too Much Heart)
By Willy DeVille

Every morning I'm broken
Everyday I die
Every night I weaken
And every night I cry

Standing in the rain
In the street outside
Running down my face
Tears in my eyes

Demasiado corazón

Don't know why I wake up
Don't know why I try
Was that me the cool one
Or another guy

Standing in the shadows
Of the sky above
No one knows I'm crying
Beaten by my love

Demasiado corazón

Cada mañana
estoy quebrado,
y por las noches
me despierto
con lágrimas negras,
fuera de la calle,
abajo de la lluvia

Lonely with my pride
Holding in my pain

Demasiado corazón

viento de cine — 6 — dos sombreros de copa & el jardín de los cilicios




[Uno de los invitados habituales del programa radiofónico «Viento de Cine» era el despiadado crítico teatral, señor Salas. Sus peculiaridades fonéticas, por ejemplo, para pronunciar la erre (lo cual, según decía, le había venido de perlas cuando estudiaba francés), lo hacían aún más entrañable. He aquí dos breves muestras de todo ello.]


(1)

—Dígame, señor Salas, ¿qué obra piensa tirarnos hoy por los suelos?

Dos sombrgeros de copa.

 —¡Cómo! ¡Vaya metedura de pata, tratándose de usted, el crítico más importante del país y parte del extranjero! Querrá decir, naturalmente, Tres sombreros de copa, del insigne don Miguel Mihura.

—No, señor Rgüeda. Digo bien y me rgeafirgmo: Dos sombrgeros de copa, y no más. Todo ello debido a la catastrgófica disposición visual de nuestrgos anfiteatrgos y a la sobrgealimentación de las nuevas generaciones.

—Explíquese, por favor.

—¿A usted nunca se le ha plantado delante un mocetón de esos que harían más servicio en una cancha de baloncesto que en un patio de butacas, erigiéndose imponente cual columna dórica? Total, que de los trges sombrgeros de Mihura, me quedo con dos, y grgacias. Casi casi, ni eso.

—Vaya por Dios. Pero bueno, ¿la obra se deja ver o sienta como un tiro?

—Yo me la conozco de memoria y me encanta. Pero no sabrgía juzgar íntegrgamente esta vergsión. Soy demasiado prgofesional para eso. Si al menos me prgeguntara por el cogote del tío que tenía delante...

—¿Y qué tal el cogote?

—Normalito.


(2)

—¿Señor Salas?

—Le oigo, señor Rgüeda.

—Díganos, ¿qué obra ha visto esta semana?

—Pues he visto El jargdín de los cilicios, un engendrgo (¡uf, qué palabrgeja!)...

—Y que lo diga.

—...perpetrgado por un insigne plantel de figuras de prgimera línea de nuestrgo teatrgo.

—A ver, explíqueme esa paradoja.

—Muy sencillo. El tejsto no se sostiene. No hay tejsto. La trgama brgilla por su ausencia. Apenas hay escenario, ni luces. Los actores suficiente tienen con salir cada noche ante un patio de butacas sempitergnamente desiergto.

—¿Nada más que añadir?

—Sí. Cabe hacer mención de una joven futura prgomesa de la escena que tiene un papel insuficiente, pero que apunta.

—Algo es algo. ¿Y cuál es su papel?

—Ya le digo que es la apuntadora. El tejsto es tan absurgdo y demencial que parece imposible que entrge en ninguna cabeza humana. Si no fuese por ella, lo poquísimo, poquísimo, que queda de espectáculo, se iría al trgaste.

—Entonces, ¿recomienda a nuestros oyentes que vayan?

—Que vayan si quieren hacer una obrga de caridad. Si no, que se queden en casa viendo la tele. ¡Aburggr!

viento de cine — 5 — sintonía pastoral




[Esta historia verídica e increíble, desclasificada de los archivos secretos del añorado programa radiofónico «Viento de Cine», da fe de que la inimitable voz del crítico Óscar Rueda llegaba a los rincones más apartados, y a las criaturas más insospechadas, de Hesperia, de Hispania, o, por usar la hermosa y castiza imagen, de la piel de toro.]


(1)

Entre la fauna de oyentes del programa radiofónico «Viento de Cine», contábase un rebaño de vacas de un pueblecito leonés.

Desde que escuchaban «Viento de Cine», decía su amo, el señor Ordóñez, las vacas daban un litro de leche más (por término medio).

Antes de acostarse, el señor Ordóñez llevaba su viejo transistor al establo, y lo colocaba entre la paja. Ellas esperaban ansiosas el momento de sintonizar. Cuando lo veían aparecer, proferían histéricos mugidos de alegría.

—No sé cómo os puede gustar esa basura —solía decirles a las bestias el señor Ordóñez, quien aseguraba no escuchar nunca el programa.


(2)

Cierta noche, las vacas del pueblecito leonés se quedaron sin «Viento de Cine». El transistor había desaparecido misteriosamente.

El señor Ordóñez se frotaba los sesos, intentando hallar alguna solución al enigma.

Días después, una de las vacas cayó enferma. El señor Ordóñez llamó al veterinario, quien, tras un concienzudo examen, diagnosticó:

—Transistor en la barriga.

El señor Ordóñez reconstruyó mentalmente los hechos. La vaca, estirando un poco el hocico, había engullido el adorado transistor.

—Acérquese —dijo el veterinario—, y escuche. Esto es asombroso.

El señor Ordóñez arrimó la oreja al vientre de la vaca, y pudo distinguir la inconfundible voz de Óscar Rueda bramando desde los intestinos del animal:

—¡Sáquenme! ¡Sáquenme de aquí!

A partir de entonces, mucha gente acudía al establo para escuchar «Viento de Cine» a través de la tripa de una vaca. Según decían los paletos, era más chic.

Bob Dylan: Biograph, Disc Three 


Up To Me
By Bob Dylan

Everything went from bad to worse, money never changed a thing
Death kept followin’, trackin’ us down, at least I heard your bluebird sing
Now somebody’s got to show their hand, time is an enemy
I know you’re long gone, I guess it must be up to me

If I’d thought about it I never would’ve done it, I guess I would’ve let it slide
If I’d lived my life by what others were thinkin’, the heart inside me would’ve died
I was just too stubborn to ever be governed by enforced insanity
Someone had to reach for the risin’ star, I guess it was up to me

Oh, the Union Central is pullin’ out and the orchids are in bloom
I’ve only got me one good shirt left and it smells of stale perfume
In fourteen months I’ve only smiled once and I didn’t do it consciously
Somebody’s got to find your trail, I guess it must be up to me

It was like a revelation when you betrayed me with your touch
I’d just about convinced myself that nothin’ had changed that much
The old Rounder in the iron mask slipped me the master key
Somebody had to unlock your heart, he said it was up to me

Well, I watched you slowly disappear down into the officers’ club
I would’ve followed you in the door but I didn’t have a ticket stub
So I waited all night ’til the break of day, hopin’ one of us could get free
When the dawn came over the river bridge, I knew it was up to me

Oh, the only decent thing I did when I worked as a postal clerk
Was to haul your picture down off the wall near the cage where I used to work
Was I a fool or not to try to protect your identity?
You looked a little burned out, my friend, I thought it might be up to me

Well, I met somebody face to face and I had to remove my hat
She’s everything I need and love but I can’t be swayed by that
It frightens me, the awful truth of how sweet life can be
But she ain’t a-gonna make me move, I guess it must be up to me

We heard the Sermon on the Mount and I knew it was too complex
It didn’t amount to anything more than what the broken glass reflects
When you bite off more than you can chew you pay the penalty
Somebody’s got to tell the tale, I guess it must be up to me

Well, Dupree came in pimpin’ tonight to the Thunderbird Café
Crystal wanted to talk to him, I had to look the other way
Well, I just can’t rest without you, love, I need your company
But you ain’t a-gonna cross the line, I guess it must be up to me

There’s a note left in the bottle, you can give it to Estelle
She’s the one you been wond’rin’ about, but there’s really nothin’ much to tell
We both heard voices for a while, now the rest is history
Somebody’s got to cry some tears, I guess it must be up to me

So go on, boys, and play your hands, life is a pantomime
The ringleaders from the county seat say you don’t have all that much time
And the girl with me behind the shades, she ain’t my property
One of us has got to hit the road, I guess it must be up to me

And if we never meet again, baby, remember me
How my lone guitar played sweet for you that old-time melody
And the harmonica around my neck, I blew it for you, free
No one else could play that tune, you know it was up to me
