William Butler Yeats: Nunca des tu corazón








Nunca des tu corazón


Nunca des todo tu corazón por amor
las mujeres apasionadas 
apenas lo considerarán si parece
seguro, y ellas nunca conciben
que se desgaste beso a beso;
pues todo lo amoroso es
sólo un suspiro, un sueño, amable deleite.
Oh, nunca des el corazón completamente,
por ellas, por lo que puedan decir los suaves labios,
pues han entregado sus corazones al juego.
¿Y quién puede jugar lo bastante bien
si está sordo y mudo y ciego de amor?
Ése que lo hizo conoce el costo,
porque dio su corazón entero y lo perdió.



William Butler Yeats, Poesía Reunida, Ed Pre-Textos, 2010
Versión: Marina Kohon


Never Give the Heart


Never give all the heart, for love
Will hardly seem worth thinking of
To passionate women if it seem
Certain, and they never dream
That it fades out from kiss to kiss;
For everything that's lovely is
But a brief, dreamy, kind delight.
O never give the heart outright,
For they, for all smooth lips can say,
Have given their hearts up to the play.
And who could play it well enough
If deaf and dumb and blind with love?
He that made this knows all the cost,
For he gave all his heart and lost.

                           



Aquí el poema musicalizado por Garret Wall Band

Kodaline: High Hopes









Kodaline (anteriormente 21 Demands) es una banda de indie rock irlandesa formada en el 2005 en la ciudad de Dublín. El grupo está conformado por Steve Garrigan, Mark Prendergast, Jason Boland y Vinny May. Uno de sus sencillos más famosos es "Give a Minute" publicado en el 2007 cuando todavía eran 21 Demands. Una banda promisoria.





"High Hopes"
Broken bottles in the hotel lobby
Seems to me like I'm just scared of never feeling it again
I know it's crazy to believe in silly things
But it's not that easy

I remember it now, it takes me back to when it all first started
But I've only got myself to blame for it, and I accept it now
It's time to let it go, go out and start again
But it's not that easy

But I've got high hopes, it takes me back to when we started
High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again
High hopes, when it all comes to an end
But the world keeps spinning around

And in my dreams, I meet the ghosts of all the people who have come and gone
Memories, they seem to show up so quick but they leave you far too soon
Naïve I was just staring at the barrel of a gun
And I do believe that, yeah

But I've got high hopes, it takes me back to when we started
High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again
High hopes, oh, when it all comes to an end
Now the world keeps spinning
Yeah, the world keeps spinning around

High hopes, it takes me back to when we started
High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again
High hopes, oh,
And the world keeps spinning
Ooh, yeah, this world keeps spinning

How this world keeps spinning around
