Sweet love for four-part mixed choir

Josep Maria Guix


SONNET LVI Sweet love, renew thy force, be it not said Thy edge should blunter be than appetite, Which but today by feeding is allayed, Tomorrow sharp'ned in his former might. So love, be thou, although today thou fill Thy hungry eyes, ev'n till they wink with fullness, Tomorrow see again, and do not kill The spirit of love with a perpetual dullness. Let this sad int'rim like the ocean be Which parts the shore, where two contracted new Come daily to the banks, that when they see Return of love, more blest may be the view; As call it winter, which being full of care, Makes summer's welcome, thrice more wished, more rare.

William Shakespeare

SONNET 56

SONET 56

Sweet love, renew thy force, be it not said Thy edge should blunter be than appetite, Which but today by feeding is allayed, Tomorrow sharp'ned in his former might.

Renova forces, dolç amor, que no fos dit que el teu desig és menys esmussat que la fam, que només per un dia menjant s'ha consumit, però que l'endemà torna a llançar el seu clam.

So love, be thou, although today thou fill Thy hungry eyes, ev'n till they wink with fullness, Tomorrow see again, and do not kill The spirit of love with a perpetual dullness.

Sigues com ella, amor; i encara que ara, ardit, nodreixis els teus ulls fins al sadollament, torna a veure-hi, demà; no matis l'esperit de l'amor amb un trist i llarg ensopiment.

Let this sad int'rim like the ocean be Which parts the shore, where two contracted new Come daily to the banks, that when they see Return of love, more blest may be the view;

Fes que el trist interval sigui com l'oceà que separa les platges, on dos amants fervents van cada dia i quan ja poden contemplar el retorn de l'amor estan molt més contents;

As call it winter, which being full of care Makes summer's welcome, thrice more wished, more rare.

o com l'hivern, que viu en l'atribolament i fa el març benvingut, més ric, més sorprenent. (Traducció de Salvador Oliva)
