Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping beauty

Sleeping Beauty pricked her thumb,
started feeling overcome.
Probably she would have died
as the witch had prophesied,
but the fairies had her blessed
so she just got beauty rest.
For a hundred fifty years
she missed balls and film premieres,
till Prince Charming came along
singing out a cheerful song.
Kneeling down he kissed her cheek
hoping that she'd wake and speak.
Sleeping Beauty raised an arm
reaching for the snooze alarm
and her waking words were these:
"Just need five more minutes please."

Após visualizar este "post", sugiro-lhe que oiça Beim Schlafengehen (Going to Sleep) com a soprano Gundula Janowitz que canta esta ária, no compto de quatro, e que poderá visualizar no link que abaixo identifico. Richard Strauss é um dos meus compositores favoritos e sobretudo a soberba composição de Tod und Verklärung (Death and Transfiguration) - Vier letzte Lieder (Four Last Songs), sob a batuta de Herbet von Karajan com a Orquestra Filarmónica de Berlim. Aprecie e disfrute da sensibilidade das emoções. Apresento desde já a sua boa-vinda ao blogue que ao "negá-lo" iria causar tristeza para quem o segue pelos seus excelentes post's. Cumprimentos a si e á sua família.
