Derivado de Sir Thomas Wyatt

Nacido en 1503 en Yorkshire, al norte de Inglaterra; padre renacentista del soneto inglés.

¿Habría él pensado en su cumpleaños 39; el último de su existencia,  que un grupo de electrónica decadente retomaría sus palabras así como las de Lord Byron, Sir Edward Dyer y otros poetas ingleses, para dar vida a sus líricas cinco centurias después de su vida?

Evocar las voces del pasado con un matiz del ahora posmoderno. Esa es la propuesta de Stereo Alchemy. Por mucho, una de los mejores grupos que tocan en mi iPod.

Sir Thomas Wyatt

Ahora tengol Is it possible en el top 5 de las canciones de mi memoria musical, pero parece no existir en internet el video con la canción sola, entonces pongo un link con el disco completo God of Love.

16:48 Is It Possible

 

Esta es la letra de la canción de Stereo Alchemy:

IS IT POSSIBLE

Is it possible for you to learn, with just a word a heart can turn
From love to hate, from young to old, from soft to hard, from hot to cold.

Is it possible to be so blind, that I’m afraid of what I’ll find
That what you said is what you meant, that you are filled with cruel intent
Is it possible?

Is it possible for me to find, within a dark conflicted mind
Two wants that cannot be undone, two truths to reconcile as one

Is it possible that it’s too much that I could live without your touch
‘Cause what you say and what you do are not the same and I am through
‘Cause you’re impossible
You’re impossible

 

Y este es el poema original de Sir Thomas Wyatt

IS IT POSSIBLE

Is it possible

That so high debate,
So sharp, so sore, and of such rate,
Should end so soon and was begun so late?

Is it possible?

 

Is it possible
So cruel intent,
So hasty heat and so soon spent,
From love to hate, and thence for to relent?

Is it possible?

 

Is it possible
That any may find
Within one heart so diverse mind,
To change or turn as weather and wind?
Is it possible?

Is it possible
To spy it in an eye
That turns as oft as chance on die,
The truth whereof can any try?
Is it possible?

It is possible
For to turn so oft,
To bring that lowest which was most aloft,
And to fall highest yet to light soft:
It is possible.

All is possible
Whoso list believe.
Trust therefore first, and after preve,
As men wed ladies by licence and leave.
All is possible.
