Red Rubber Ball
By B. Woodley & P. Simon

I should have known you'd bid me farewell
There's a lesson to be learned from this and I've learned it very well
Now I know you're not the only starfish in the sea
If I never hear your name again, it's all the same to me

And I think it's gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball

You never care for secrets I confide
To you, I'm just an ornament, something for your pride
Always running, never caring, that's the life you live
Stolen minutes of your time were all you had to give

And I think it's gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball

The story's in the past with nothing to recall
I've got my life to live, and I don't need you at all
The roller coaster ride we took is nearly at an end
I bought my tickets with my tears, that's all I'm gonna spend

And I think it's gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball

I think it's gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball
It's bouncing and it's shining like a red rubber ball

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
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
parece descender
del firmamento
que el astro irisa.

Es la hora exquisita.

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.]


—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?



—¿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!
