Poesia de Manuel Banet «Em Louvor dos Corpos Sábios» [& Cat Stevens: «Morning Has Broken»]

EM LOUVOR DOS CORPOS SÁBIOS*


            que a tua água
                     seja o meu vinho

            que o nosso amor seja
                    o nosso pão

                  ....

      Era uma história
de vinhas preguiçosas:
- quando raiava o dia
        escondiam sua glória...

[* Do livro inédito «Transfigurações» de Manuel Banet]





                          CAT STEVENS AO VIVO





Morning has broken, 

like the first morning

Blackbird has spoken, 

like the first bird

Praise for the singing, 

praise for the morning

Praise for the springing 

fresh from the word

Sweet the rain's new fall, 


sunlit from heaven

Like the first dewfall, 

on the first grass

Praise for the sweetness 

of the wet garden

Sprung in completeness 

where his feet pass


Mine is the sunlight, 


mine is the morning

Born of the one light, 

Eden saw play

Praise with elation, 

praise every morning

God's recreation 

of the new day


Morning has broken,


like the first morning

Blackbird has spoken, 

like the first bird

Praise for the singing,

praise for the morning

Praise for the springing 

fresh from the word
