Farewell



Era em vinil, com uma capa em tons de camurça. Ouvi-o vezes tantas que quase sabia de cor cada um das notas de todos os temas. Tudo isso desapareceu. Pouquíssimos se lembram. Encontrei-o aqui. São os Fairport Convention. A voz é a de Sandy Denny. Eu já tive vinte anos. Foi em 1969.

Farewell, farewell to you who would hear
You lonely travellers all
The cold north winds will blow again
The winding road does call.

And will you never return to see
Your bruised and beaten sons
O I would,I would if welcome I were
For they loathe me every one.

And will you never cut the cloth
Or drink the light to be
And can you never swear a year
To anyone but we.

No I will never cut the cloth
Or drink the light to be
But I'll swear a year to one who lies
Asleep alongside of me.
