Poets and Poetry and Music

There are many deities, muse, nymphae, gods and goddesses, associated with poetry in many culutres. My favorite may be Brighid, the Gaeilge  Goddess in Trinity.

and all the men and women merely players:
they have their exits and their entrances;
and one man in his time plays many parts…”

TAKE THIS WALTZ — LEONARD COHEN Y FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA

Leonard Cohen tradujo esta letra al inglés para musicalizarlo con ritmo de vals
Pequeño Vals Vienés (*)
Federico García Lorca

En Viena hay diez muchachas,
un hombro donde solloza la muerte
y un bosque de palomas disecadas.
Hay un fragmento de la mañana
en el museo de la escarcha.
Hay un salón con mil ventanas.
¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals, este vals,
este vals con la boca cerrada.

En Viena hay cuatro espejos
donde juegan tu boca y los ecos.
Hay una muerte para piano
que pinta de azul a los muchachos.
Hay mendigos por los tejados,
hay frescas guirnaldas de llanto.
¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals, este vals,
este vals que se muere en mis brazos.

Este vals, este vals, este vals, este vals,
de sí, de muerte y de coñac,
que moja su cola en el mar.
Porque te quiero, te quiero amor mío,
en el desván donde juegan los niños,
soñando viejas luces de Hungría
por los rumores de la tarde tibia,
viendo ovejas y lirios de nieve
por el silencio oscuro de tu frente.
¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals, este vals,
este vals de quebrada cintura.

Este vals, este vals, este vals, este vals,
de sí, de muerte y de coñac,
que moja su cola en el mar.

En Viena bailaré contigo
con un disfraz que tenga cabeza de río.
¡Mira qué orillas tengo de jacintos!
Dejaré mi boca entre tus piernas,
mi alma en fotografías y azucenas,
y en las ondas oscuras de tu andar.
Quiero amor mío, amor mío, dejar
violín y sepulcro, las cintas del vals.
Quiero amor mío, amor mío, dejar
violín y sepulcro, las cintas del vals.
¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals, este vals,
este vals del “te quiero siempre”.

Este vals, este vals, este vals, este vals,
de sí, de muerte y de coñac,
que moja su cola en el mar.

Este vals, este vals, este vals, este vals,
de sí, de muerte y de coñac,
que moja su cola en el mar.

Porque te quiero, te quiero amor mío,
en el desván donde juegan los niños,
soñando viejas luces de Hungría
por los rumores de la tarde tibia …

WAR –Music Themes

__________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________
What else is WAR other than a nightmare parade, a carnival of lost souls?
______________
Nightmare Parade — Carnival of Lost Souls — Nox Arcana

__________________________________________________________
The poetic Gaeilge languages seem to have a built in understand the relationship between terror and the control of others .   In language origins there is an association between this terrible power or terror power and with greatness. The construction of all languages and the basic root words give us more than hints and about our individual cultural perspectives about  what WAR is and what situations require WAR.
______________
Queen of Crows — Two Steps From Hell — Thomas Bergeron

The Morrigan  is the Queen of Crows
“… the Irish “Morrígan” has its roots either in a word for “terror” or a word for “greatness”.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Morr%C3%ADgan
___________________________________________________________
This dance excerpt clip  from a Chinese made film dramatizing the Rape of Nanking
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_of_Nanking
Nanking was only one monstrous atrocity. Our World History is filled with atrocity. How is it that there are still persons who wish to commit yet more atrocities? There are those who are committing horror on others at this very moment.
There are many well made and beautiful films and symphony scores which glorify massacres, genocide, and the horror we inflict on each other. I chose this clip because, being a caricature, it is not so beautiful in the terrible way that much    WAR drama is.

City of Life and Death — Nanjing! Nanjing! —

___________________________________________________________
Beethoven said all he had to say about Napoleon and “his” WAR  is in the Eroica.  He says it much better than I.

TheMaiden666beast
___________________________________________________________
How many WARs are begun as simple misunderstandings, misinterpretation of language?  Not many, I think. Deceit is no accident. Evil disguises itself in ideology and hides behind twisted language.  Conflict and confusion is sowed for the purpose of WAR.
________________
TOWER OF BABEL — Frank Lindamood

___________________________________________________________
WAR  Mongers take heed. Not all judgment is divine. Perhaps you will be judged by the Mothers of Men.  Ye who force others to fight for reasons that should not be are cursed already.  You have cursed yourselves.   What should be our judgment?   Can a Being with no soul experience judgement?

Fire — Angels and Demons — Hans Zimmer
HansZimmerVidz’s channel
___________________________________________________________
In the end, it is love, not fear or the terrible glory of death, that prevents us from completely annihilating one another with  WAR. Most of us have grown up with the good fortune of Damocles hanging over our infant cradles. This good fortune has been gently swaying over our heads since before I was born.  Is it possible to remove this Sword of Annihilation from our beautiful Earth?

I wanted to touch on our Civil WAR and the introduction of the Draft (conscript military service), and World WAR  I and how World WAR  II was a continuation of WWI and how WWI was left over from older times. I wanted to touch on how many of our current conflicts and wars are not really new, but are part of the aftermath of unresolved older WARs …. As with anything else, there is no way to separate out anything from everything else. All of history flows together. We are what we are.

CRITICALLY CONFUSING CRYPTICS
As the inertia was lost while some of us were AFTC (Away From The Computer) for various reasons, and we have been unable to overcome the resulting inertia, CRTICALLY CONFUSING CRYPTICS will have to create its own momentum. I have chosen the first subject MAYA माया ILLUSION to start off. The next subject will be chosen by Eva to be “published” Thursday, February 27, 2014.
