Final do Torneio de Toulon Junho 10, 2005

Portugal foi goleado pela França por 4-1
A França venceu o Torneio de Toulon ao derrotar Portugal na final por 4-1 com 2-0 ao intervalo.
A selecção portuguesa foi completamente dominada pelos franceses. Christopher com duas defesas espectaculares ainda adiou o primeiro golo mas este surgiu aos 27′ num remate de fora da área de Haddad. Quando dois minutos depois a França fez 2-0 logo se viu que o jogo estava sentenciado.
Nem sequer se pode falar da reacção de Portugal, que não houve. É certo que os franceses na segunda parte fizeram recuar mais a sua equipa mas o controlo do jogo pertenceu-lhes por absoluto. Restou-nos a consolação de um golo já no final ( uma oferta do guarda-redes suplente francês recém-entrado) para amenizar uma derrota por números inesperados, se nos lembrarmos que Portugal ainda não tinha sofrido qualquer golo.
 

Alma minha gentil, que te partiste

Alma minha gentil, que te partiste
Tão cedo desta vida descontente,
Repousa lá no Céu eternamente
E viva eu cá na terra sempre triste.

Se lá no assento Etéreo, onde subiste,
Memória desta vida se consente,
Não te esqueças daquele amor ardente
Que já nos olhos meus tão puro viste.

E se vires que pode merecer-te
Alguma cousa a dor que me ficou
Da mágoa sem remédio de perder-te,

Roga a Deus, que teus anos encurtou,
Que tão cedo de cá me leve a ver-te,
Quão cedo de meus olhos te levou.

Luís de Camões

 

Dia de Camões, Dia de Portugal…

Neste dia de Camões, de Portugal e das Comunidades Portuguesas (aniversário da morte do grande poeta) é mais do que justificada a publicação aqui de alguns dos mais belos sonetos da Literatura portuguesa. E fica também aqui a reprodução da estátua em Lisboa, que lhe presta homenagem.

Mudam-se os tempos, mudam-se as vontades,

Filed under: Luís de Camões,poesia — looking4good @ 2:12 pm

Mudam-se os tempos, mudam-se as vontades,
Muda-se o ser, muda-se a confiança;
Todo o mundo é composto de mudança,
Tomando sempre novas qualidades.

Continuamente vemos novidades,
Diferentes em tudo da esperança;
Do mal ficam as mágoas na lembrança,
E do bem, se algum houve, as saudades.

O tempo cobre o chão de verde manto,
Que já coberto foi de neve fria,
E em mim converte em choro o doce canto.

E, afora este mudar-se cada dia,
Outra mudança faz de mor espanto:
Que não se muda já como soía.

Luís de Camões

 

Aquela triste e leda madrugada, – Camões –

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 1:58 pm

Aquela triste e leda madrugada,
Cheia toda de mágoa e de piedade,
Enquanto houver no mundo saudade,
Quero que seja sempre celebrada.

Ela só, quando amena e marchetada
Saía, dando ao mundo claridade,
Viu apartar-se d’uma outra vontade,
Que nunca poderá ver-se apartada.

Ela só viu as lágrimas em fio,
Que de uns e de outros olhos derivadas,
Se acrescentaram em grande e largo rio.

Ela ouviu as palavras magoadas
Que puderam tornar o fogo frio,
E dar descanso às almas condenadas.

Luís de Camões

 

Amor é fogo que arde sem se ver

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 1:50 pm

Amor é fogo que arde sem se ver;
É ferida que dói e não se sente;
É um contentamento descontente;
É dor que desatina sem doer;

É um não querer mais que bem querer;
É solitário andar por entre a gente;
É nunca contentar-se de contente;
É cuidar que se ganha em se perder;

É querer estar preso por vontade;
É servir a quem vence, o vencedor;
É ter com quem nos mata lealdade.

Mas como causar pode seu favor
Nos corações humanos amizade,
Se tão contrário a si é o mesmo Amor?

Luís de Camões (n. 1524 – m. 10 Jun 1580)
