DANSA DE LA PRIMAVERA (MARIA DEL MAR BONET)

DANSA DE LA PRIMAVERA (MARIA DEL MAR BONET)

Febrer m'ha duït la carta tan precisa:
Vol que els lilàs s'obrin pels dits
I, en el cor, m'hi creixi una palmera.
Què exigent que ve la primavera!

Què exigent que ve la primavera,
I el meu cor tan malaltís,
Tenc por que es cremi dins de la foguera,
No puc desfer-me del seu encís.

No puc desfer-me del seu encís,
Obrir les branques i ballar amb ella,
Pentinar-me al seu vent la cabellera,
Cantar les llunes de les seves nits.

Cantar les llunes de les seves nits,
Cantar vermells de la tardor,
Cantar el silenci de la nova neu,
Cantar, si torna, el dolorós amor.

Cantar, si torna, el dolorós amor
I néixer un poc més en l'intent,
I créixer un poc més cada entretemps
I volar amb el vent i les noves llavors.

Volar amb el vent i les noves llavors;
Qui sap on el vent em portarà,
A dins el cor d'una terra antiga,
O creixeré al fons de la mar.

Febrer m'ha duït la carta tan precisa:
Vol que els lilàs s'obrin pels dits
I, en el cor, m'hi creixi una palmera.
Què exigent que ve la primavera!

TRANSLATION

Dance of the spring season

February has brought me the so precise letter:
Wants the lilacs to blossom from their finger tips,
And in my heart, to grow a sweet palm tree.
How demanding is spring coming!

How demanding is spring coming,
And my heart, so sickly it is,
I fear it may burn in the bonfire,
I can't get rid of her charming allure.

I can't get rid of her charming allure,
Open my branches and dance with her,
Do my hair with her soft breeze,
Sing the moons of her full nights.

Sing the moons of her full nights,
Sing the reds of autumn lights,
Sing the silence of new snow,
Sing, should it return, of painful love.

Sing, should it return, of painful love,
And be a bit more reborn in the attempt,
and be a bit more reborn at each new spring,
And fly with the wind and the new seeds.

And fly with the wind and the new seeds.
Who knows where the wind will take me,
Right into the heart of an ancient land,
Or maybe I'll grow deep into the sea.

February has brought me the so precise letter:
Wants the lilacs to blossom from their finger tips,
And in my heart, to grow a sweet palm tree.
How demanding is spring coming!

Someday, someone's gonna love me
The way I wanted you to need me
Someday, someone's gonna take your place
One day, I'll forget about you
You'll see I won't even miss you
Someday... someday...

Nina, Someday

He plays golf with Kofi Annan and looks at maps with George Cloon! (ey!)

(PS, it should totally be required to listen to the song the previous person posted...y'all are listening to some fantastic tunes!)
