Inspiração

Loreena McKennitt

20.02.20, Olga Cardoso Pinto

A música, a exótica sonoridade e voz de uma beleza indescritível de Loreena, fazem parte do repertório que oiço quase diariamente para as minhas criações. Este tema, Beneath a Phrygian Sky, pertence ao album An Ancient Muse.

The moonlight it was dancing
On the waves, out on the sea
The stars of heaven hovered
In a shimmering galaxy

A voice from down the ages
So haunting in its song
These ancient stars will tell us
Our love must make us strong

The breeze it wrapped around me
As I stood there on the shore
And listened to this voice
Like I never heard before

Our battles they may find us
No choice may ours to be
But hold the banner proudly
The truth will set us free

My mind was called across the years
Of rages and of strife
Of all the human misery
And all the waste of life

We wondered where our God was
In the face of so much pain
And I looked up to the stars above
To find you once again

We travelled the wide oceans
Heard many call your name
With sword and gun and hatred
It all seemed much the same

Some used your name for glory
Some used it for their gain
Yet when liberty lay wanting
No lives were lost in vain

Is it not our place to wonder
As the sky does weep with tears
And all the living creatures
Look on with mortal fear

It is ours to hold the banner
Is ours to hold it long
It is ours to carry forward
Our love must make us strong

And as the warm wind carried
Its song into the night
I closed my eyes and tarried
Until the morning light

As the last star it shimmered
And the new sun's day gave birth
It was in this magic moment
Came this prayer for mother earth

The moonlight it was dancing
On the waves, out on the sea
The stars of heaven hovered
In a shimmering galaxy

A voice from down the ages
So haunting in its song
The ancient stars will tell us
Our love must make us strong

Loreena é de origem canadiana e uma apaixonada pela cultura e música celta. Podem conhecê-la melhor aqui no seu site.

Pessoalmente, esta música toca-me bastante, como poderia não ser inspiradora? Mas há muitas outras que iluminam a criatividade, humor e bem-estar. Podem ouvir aqui

Que seja também inspiradora para vocês!
