久しぶりに、サイモンとガーファンクルの名曲を聴きました。
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpOxTL1ueDM&NR=1)
心にしみじみとしみ込んできます。

彼らの若い頃のビデオで、とても素敵ですね。
そして、歌詞が素敵ですね。
折角ですから、私のブログにも掲載させていただきます。


     サウンド・オブ・サイレンス

1
Hello,darkness my old friend.
I've come to talk with you again.
Because a vision softly creeping.
Left its seeds while I was sleeping.
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains.
With in The Sound Of Silence.

2
In restless derams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone.
Neath the halo of a street lamp.
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched The Sound Of Silence.

3
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people maybe more.
People talking without speaking.
People hearing without listening.
People writing song that voices never share
And no one dare
Disturb The Sound Of Silence.

4
"Fools" said I."You do not know
Silence like a canccer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell.
And echoed
In the wells of silence.

5
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning.
In the words that it was forming.
And the signs said.
"The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls."
And whisper'd in The Sounds of Silence.


[後書き]
3月初旬、上京したとき、
幾年振りかで見た銀座のあまりの変貌振りに落胆しました。
まるで香港。
そして、一週間後の大震災。

歌詞5を読んで、このことを思い出しました。
震災が警告なら、あまりにも的外れ、あまりにもむごい。
日本人は、東北をしっかりと復興する傍ら、
金と権力だけに仕える姿勢も切り替えてゆかねば、
そんな想いがこみ上げてきます。
