Charles Baudelaire – “The Sick Muse”

August 31, 2008 at 1:12 pm (Poetry & Literature)

My impoverished muse, alas! What have you for me this morning?
Your empty eyes are stocked with nocturnal visions,
In your cheek’s cold and taciturn reflection,
I see insanity and horror forming.
The green succubus and the red urchin,
Have they poured you fear and love from their urns?
The nightmare of a mutinous fist that despotically turns,
Does it drown you at the bottom of a loch beyond searching?

I wish that your breast exhaled the scent of sanity,
That your womb of thought was not a tomb more frequently
And that your Christian blood flowed around a buoy that was rhythmical,

Like the numberless sounds of antique syllables,
Where reigns in turn the father of songs,
Phoebus, and the great Pan, the harvest sovereign.

John Lennon – “Across the Universe” (1969)

August 31, 2008 at 12:20 pm (John Lennon, Poetry & Literature, The Beatles)

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind,
Possessing and caressing me

Jai Guru De Va Om
Nothing’s gonna change my world

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
They call me on and on across the universe,
Thoughts meander like a restless wind
Inside a letter box, they
Tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe

Jai Guru De Va Om
Nothing’s gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter, shades of life are ringing
Through my open ears, inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns,
And calls me on and on across the universe

Jai Guru De Va Om
Nothing’s gonna change my world.

Jai Guru De Va.

Leonard Cohen – “Democracy” (1993)

August 31, 2008 at 12:20 pm (Leonard Cohen, Poetry & Literature)

It’s coming through a hole in the air,
from those nights in Tiananmen Square
It’s coming from the feel
that this ain’t exactly real,
or it’s real, but it ain’t exactly there
From the wars against disorder,
from the sirens night and day,
from the fires of the homeless,
from the ashes of the gay:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
It’s coming through a crack in the wall;
on a visionary flood of alcohol;
from the staggering account
of the Sermon on the Mount
which I don’t pretend to understand at all
It’s coming from the silence
on the dock of the bay,
from the brave, the bold, the battered
heart of Chevrolet:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

It’s coming from the sorrow in the street,
the holy places where the races meet;
from the homicidal bitchin’
that goes down in every kitchen
to determine who will serve and who will eat
From the wells of disappointment
where the women kneel to pray
for the grace of God in the desert here
and the desert far away:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

Sail on, sail on
O mighty Ship of State!
To the Shores of Need
Past the Reefs of Greed
Through the Squalls of Hate
Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on

It’s coming to America first,
the cradle of the best and of the worst
It’s here they got the range
and the machinery for change
and it’s here they got the spiritual thirst
It’s here the family’s broken
and it’s here the lonely say
that the heart has got to open
in a fundamental way:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

It’s coming from the women and the men
O baby, we’ll be making love again
We’ll be going down so deep
the river’s going to weep,
and the mountain’s going to shout Amen!
It’s coming like the tidal flood
beneath the lunar sway,
imperial, mysterious,
in amorous array:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

Sail on, sail on…

I’m sentimental, if you know what I mean
I love the country but I can’t stand the scene
And I’m neither left or right
I’m just staying home tonight,
getting lost in that hopeless little screen
But I’m stubborn as those garbage bags
that Time cannot decay,
I’m junk but I’m still holding up
this little wild bouquet:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
