Soft Black StarsLittle children snuggle under soft black starsAnd if you look into their eyes soft black starsDeliver them from the book and the letter and the wordAnd let them read the silence bathed in soft black starsLet them trace the raindrops under soft black starsLet them follow whispers and scare away the nightLet them kiss the featherbreath of soft black starsAnd let them ride their horses licked by the wind and the snowAnd tip-toe into twilight where we all one day will goCaressed with tendrils and with no fear at allTheir faces shining river gold washed by soft black starsAnd angels' wings shall soothe their caresAnd all the birds shall sing at dawnBlessed and wet with joyYou and i will meet one dayUnder the night sky lit by soft black stars
The LakeEdgar Allen PoeIn youth’s spring, it was my lotTo haunt of the wide earth a spotThe which I could not love the less;So lovely was the lonelinessOf a wild lake, with black rock bound.And the tall pines that tower’d around.But when the night had thrown her pallUpon that spot—as upon all,And the wind would pass me byIn its stilly melody,My infant spirit would awakeTo the terror of the lone lake.Yet that terror was not fright—But a tremulous delight,And a feeling undefin’d,Springing from a darken’d mind.Death was in that poison’d waveAnd in its gulf a fitting graveFor him who thence could solace bringTo his dark imagining;Whose wild’ring thought could even makeAn Eden of that dim lake.O LagoTradução de Oscar Mendes)No verdor de meus anos, meu destino foi sóhabitar, de todo o vasto mundo, uma região que amei mais do que todas, tanto encantava a solidão de um lago selvagem, que cercavam negras rochas e altos pinheiros, dominando tudo.Mas quando a Noite, em treva, amortalhavaesse recanto e o mundo, e o vento místico chegava, murmurando melopéias, então, ah! sempre em mim se despertava o terror desse lago solitário.Não era, esse, um terror, porém, de espanto, mas um delicioso calafrio, sentimento que as jóias mais preciosas não inspiram, nem fazem definir; nem mesmo o amor, nem mesmo o teu amor.Reinava a Morte na água envenenada e seu abismo era um sepulcro digno de quem pudesse ali achar consolo para seus pensamentos taciturnos, de quem a alma pudesse, desolada, no torvo lago ter um Paraíso.

You Are My SisterYou are my sister, we were born So innocent, so full of need There were times we were friends but times I was so cruel Each night I'd ask for you to watch me as I sleep I was so afraid of the night You seemed to move through the places that I feared You lived inside my world so softly Protected only by the kindness of your nature You are my sister And I love you May all of your dreams come true We felt so differently then So similar over the years The way we laugh the way we experience pain So many memories But theres nothing left to gain from remembering Faces and worlds that no one else will ever know You are my sister And I love you May all of your dreams come true I want this for you They're gonna come true (gonna come true) What Can I DoWhat can I do When the bird's got to die What can I do When she's too weak to fly What can I do When she's calling my name She's crying Mama, Help me to live What can I do
