|City and date||
Extract from the play "Songs o the livestock keeper" about poems from the book "The livestock keeper" by the Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, although in this work he used the heteronym Alberto Caeiro..
The original work is created for baritone, violin and piano, and later -i did the adaptation for soprano, flute and piano.
The entire work "Songs to the livestock keeper" hasn't yet been released as such, but instead has been released this extract of the work.
I have made two versions of this extract, one for baritone (the original) that hasn't yet been released, and another version for soprano, which has been released.
and hearing the tasting, would be a happier moment ...
Not always, however, I want to be happy.
You have to be unhappy from time to time
to be natural ...
and rain, when most needed, is asked.
So I took unhappiness with happiness,
naturally, as one who is not surprised
that there are mountains and plains
and that there are rocks and grass ...
in happiness or in unhappiness,
feel like someone who looks,
think like who makes way,
and, at the instant of death, remember that the day dies,
and that the twilight is beautiful, and beautiful the night that follows ...
Since it is so, so be it ...
