No regaço da mãe Amor estava

Fotografia de Stacy Kranitz

No regaço de mãe Amor estava
Dormindo tão formoso, que movia
O coração que mais isento o via;
E a sua propria mãe de amor matava.

Ella, co'os olhos nelle, contemplava
A quanto estrago o mundo reduzia:
Elle porém, sonhando, lhe dizia
Que todo aquelle mal ella o causava.

Soliso que, graduado em seus amores,
De saber de ambos mais teve a ventura,
Assi soltou a dúvida aos pastores:

Se bem me ferem sempre sem ter cura
Do menino os ardentes passadores,
Mais me fere da mãe a formosura.
Luís Vaz de Camões

  1. O ano de 2017 foi trágico,
    para quem gosta de soul music, com a morte de Sharon Jones e de Charles Bradley.

    Ambos tiveram que atravessar um longo deserto até chegar o dia do seu reconhecimento.
    Destino ingrato pois, um e outro, acabaram por morrer de cancro e com tanto talento.

    Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – “Call On God”
    https://youtu.be/-Ce0j9JFt1k

    Quase uma canção fúnebre e publicada no último álbum. Escrita por Sharon Jones no final dos anos 70, para o E.L. Fields’ Gospel Wonders, um grupo coral em que ela cantou em Nova Yorque. Em fundo o órgão da Universal Church of God Noir, congregação de que era membro.

    [Verse 1]
    You know your life gets filled with so much sorrow
    And it seems like there's no tomorrow
    In these times that we live here today
    Seems like everything is in your way

    [Chorus]
    You just call, call on God
    And He'll be your friend
    Just call, call on God
    And He'll carry you through
    Just call, call on God
    And He will provide
    Yes, He will (Yes, He will)
    Provide
    For you

    [Verse 2]
    I made up my mind to be with Him all the time
    And I won't let nothing turn me around
    To be like Him is what I long to be
    And to share His love to eternity

    [Chorus]
    You just call, call on God
    And He'll be your friend
    Just call, call on God
    And He'll carry you through
    Call, call on God
    And He will provide
    Yes, He will (Yes, He will)
    Provide
    For you

    1. Olá, JB, esta Proserpina foi a última escrita pela mãe Wainwrite:

      The first release from the album was 'Proserpina', a song written by your mother. When did she write the song and why did you decide to record it?

      MW: 'Proserpina' was the last song she wrote. She wrote it in the last few months of her life for a Christmas concert at the Royal Albert Hall, which was to be her last concert. My mother loved these Christmas concerts. She would torture my brother [Rufus] and me with them. She would call us up in May and start to scheme about Christmas shows and we would be annoyed because we would have other things we needed to deal with, but it was really her way of getting everyone together at that time of year.
