Above: The Weary Moon - Edward Robert Hughes

Art Thou Pale For Weariness
Art thou pale for weariness Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth,Wandering companionlessAmong the stars that have a different birth,And ever changing, like a joyless eyeThat finds no object worth its constancy?

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Art Thou Pale For Weariness

Art thou pale for weariness
Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth,
Wandering companionless
Among the stars that have a different birth,
And ever changing, like a joyless eye
That finds no object worth its constancy?

Twilight

The soft voluptuous opiate shades,
The sun just gone, the eager light dispell’d – (I too will soon be 
gone, dispell’d)
A haze – nirwana – rest and night – oblivion.

~Walt Whitman

Santosha (skt. संतोष saṃtoṣa, “contentment, satisfaction”)

"Santosha is one of the niyamas of Yoga as listed by Patanjali. Contentment is variously described, but can be thought of as not requiring more than you have to achieve contentment.  The alternate spelling samtosha is also seen." Description via: wiki

L’Amoureuse -  Carla Bruni (via: naive records on youtbe)


Lyrics with English translation (via: Edmund Staustell on youtube)


Il semble que quelqu’un ait convoqué l’espoir 
It seems that somebody has called forth hope.


Les rues sont des jardins, je danse sur les trottoirs
The streets are gardens, I dance on the sidewalks.
Il semble que mes bras soient devenus des ailes
It seems my arms have become wings.
Qu’à chaque instant qui vole je puisse toucher le ciel
That at any flying moment I can touch the sky.
Qu’à chaque instant qui passe je puisse manger le ciel
That at any passing moment I can eat the sky.

Le clochers sont penchés les arbres déraisonnent
The towers are leaning and the trees are ranting
Ils croulent sous les fleurs au plus roux de l’automne
They are caving in under Autumn-red flowers
La niege ne fond plus la pluie chante doucement
Snow no longer melts, rain sings sweetly
Et même les réverbères ont un air impatient
Even street lamps have an impatient air about them
Et même les cailloux se donnent l’air important
Yes, even pebbles take on important airs.

Car je suis l’amoureuse, oui je suis l’amoureuse
Because I am the lover!
Et je tiens dans me mains la seule de toutes les choses
And I hold in my hands the one and only thing of all things
Je suis l’amoureuse, je suis ton amoureuse
I am the lover, I am your lover
Et je chante pour toi la seule de toutes les choses
And I sing for you the one and only thing of all things
Qui vaille d’être là, qui vaille d’être là
That makes it worth being here


Le temps s’est arrêté, les heures sont volages
Time stands still, the hours are fleeing
Les minutes frissonnent et l’ennui fait naufrage
Minutes shiver and boredom shipwrecks
tout paraît inconnu tout croque sous la dent
Everything seems unknown and everything crunches under the teeth.
Et le bruit du chagrin s’éloigne lentement
And the noise of sorrow draws slowly away
Et le bruit du passé se tait tout simplement
And the noise of the past is simply silent.

Oh, les murs changent de pierres,
Oh, the walls change their stones,
Le ciel change de nuages,
The sky changes its clouds
La vie change de manières et dansent les mirages
Life changes its ways, and mirages dance.
On a vu m’a-t-on dit le destin se montrer
It was as it fate showed itself
Il avait mine de rien l’air de tout emporter
It had the appearance of nothing yet seemed to mean everything.
Il avait ton allure, ta façon de parler
It had your allure, your way of talking.

Car je suis l’amoureuse, oui je suis l’amoureuse
Because I am the lover, yes I am the lover.
Et je tiens dans me mains la seule de toutes les choses
And I hold in my hands the one and only thing of all things

Je suis l’amoureuse, je suis ton amoureuse
I am the lover, I am your lover.
Et je chante pour toi la seule de toutes les choses
and I sing for you the one and only thing of all things
Qui vaille d’être là, qui vaille d’être là.
That makes it worth while being here
