«Le Roi est mort, Vive le Roi!»

ENIGMA 3 (1996)

"The Child in Us"



prasanna vadanaaM saubhaagyadaaM bhaagyadaaM
hastaabhyaaM abhayapradaaM maNigaNair-
naanaavidhair-bhuushhitaaM

[Chant in Sanskrit (cf. Wikipedia...)]

(who is of smiling face, bestower of all fortunes,
whose hands are ready to rescue anyone from fear,
who is adorned by various ornaments with precious stones)

Puer natus est nobis,
et filius datus est nobis:
cujus imperium super humerum…

(For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given:
and the government will be upon his shoulder…)

Some day you came
And I knew you were the one.
You were the rain, you were the sun,
But I needed both, cause I needed you.

You were the one
I was dreaming of all my life.
When it is dark you are my light,
But don't forget
Who's always our guide
It is the child in us.

Day after day,
At a maddening speed,
Years fly by.
Yesterday
Winter had just started.
Tomorrow
Autumn will be here.
Years have passed,
No time to count them.
I looked back
And saw one and a half days
Of the two we're bestowed to live
Laying among shattered pieces
Of what I thought it was my life.
No amends allowed.
Time will just sweep me away,
In the end.

De nada! :-)

wonderful poetry in the words

RIC disse...

Which ones?... In any case, thanks!

lampejo disse...

O poder das palavras combinado com o poder da música... :)

RIC disse...

... Produz maravilhas, não é?
(Toda esta tarde foi passada numa grande viagem pelo tempo através da rainha das artes - a Música!)
:-)

Shadow disse...

Chega a ser curioso o efeito que a música tem sobre nós...Obrigada por estes 4.45m!

Fora do contexto do édito, queria referir o facto da barra lateral direita estar cada vez mais «composta» e interessante. Na minha singela opinião, só ali um pormenor que podia estar «melhorado» ;-)) (Aposto que adivinhas qual é, lol)

Boa semana!
Beijinhos :-)

RIC disse...

Olá Carla!
Se te ajudaram de algum modo, já fico contente q.b. (não gosto da expressão, mas a disposição com que estou não me permite melhor...). E não tens de agradecer nada.´Foi de boa vontade.
Pois é, a barra lateral vai-se compondo, agora que é bem mais fácil lidar com ela. Quanto ao pormenor a melhorar, aconselho-te vivamente a esperares sentada pela dita melhoria... Rsrsrs! Acho que nem quando «a vaca tussir»...
Espero bem que sim, ainda que não me pareça que vá começar muito bem... Mas isto é outra história.
Para ti, uma excelente semana!
Beijinhos! :-)

Gumby disse...

I love Enigma, and this is a song I have not heard before. thanks!

RIC disse...

Hello dear Gumby!
You're welcome! I hadn't listened to this kind of music in a long time. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Best wishes! :-)

T-Bird disse...

well, all fo them the sanskrit ands the other. The other -- is this from you?

T-Bird disse...

1000 points awarded to Ricky House for Ella singing "Misty".

RIC disse...

Hello Will!
The last ones on the right, yes, they are. Thank you so very much for the 1000 points on Ella's behalf, of course. All I did was to post a widget... But that song is one of my favourite ones ever.
Have a pleasant week! :-)

Catatau disse...

Quê!?... Não me digas que também sabes sânscrito!...

Têns raízes brâmanes, rsrsrsrs?

RIC disse...

Olá João M.!
Quem?! Eu?! Saber संस्कृतम ?! Não, disparate!... Rsrsrs!
A sério: não sei e tenho muita pena... Sei apenas a parte relacionada com a Linguística: a gramática de Panini - escrita 500 anos antes de Cristo! - um verdadeiro monumento de rigor!
E brâmane também não sou... Sou um plebeu português dos quatro costados (ainda que na família houvesse pretensões a altos voos históricos... Mas nomes há muitos e como eles são dados nem sempre é transparente...)
Boa semana para ti!
Abraço!

(Espero que consigas visualizar aquela pequena jóia no início desta resposta! É mesmo bonito! Rsrsrs!)

rodoula-kelly disse...

Glad you liked them, Kelly! Thanks!
Greetings from Portugal! :-)

I have a memory of Julie London (1960) and Johnny Mathis (1959) having radio hits with Misty, and of one particular weekend boating, my sister sang it all weekend. I thought it was funny (kitten in a tree? Who knows as I was a small child). A very good memory of someone who is now gone, and not coming back.
I can close my eyes and still see myself laying down in the bunk with her seated next to me singing, and me starting to laugh, and then her laughing. I was very close to her. She was 10 years my senior. I miss her deeply and truly.

Did anyone else determine that the poetry was yours?

The king will soon be leaving the building.

RIC disse...

Hello dear Will!
This is the kind of comments you write that I'll be missing until Autumn...
I've known a brother-sister relationship quite similar to yours. He was the one who was 10 years senior. To her, he was not only her brother, of course, but also some kind of younger dad. When he passed away in his 30s she was devastated. She left the country and started a whole new life in... Australia.
I wish Your Majesty all the best!
