Porque nasci ao pé de quatro montes… – Cândido Guerreiro Abril 10, 2008

Filed under: Candido Guerreiro,poesia — looking4good @ 11:26 pm
Porque nasci ao pé de quatro montes,
por onde as águas passam a cantar
as canções dos moinhos e das fontes,
ensinaram-me as águas a falar…

Eu sei a vossa língua, água das fontes…
Podeis falar comigo, águas do mar…
E ouço, à tarde, os longínquos horizontes
chorar uma saudade singular…

E, porque entendo bem aquelas mágoas
e compreendo os íntimos segredos
da voz do mar ou do rochedo mudo,

sinto-me irmão da luz, do ar, das águas,
sinto-me irmão dos íngremes penedos
e sinto que sou Deus, pois Deus é tudo…

Francisco Xavier Cândido Guerreiro nasceu em Alte (Loulé) a 3 de Dezembro de 1871 e faleceu em Lisboa a 11 de Abril de 1953. Formado em Direito pela universidade de Coimbra, em 1907, renunciou à carreira diplomática, para não se afastar do seu Algarve, e dedicou-se ao notariado, primeiro em Loulé e, depois, em Faro (1923/41). Chegou a ser presidente da Câmara Municipal de Loulé. Foi essencialmente um sonetista, filosófico, pictural e erótico, oscilante entre um misticismo vagamente panteísta e um nacionalismo retórico. O seu melhor volume de «Sonetos» foi publicado em 1916.

Soneto e Nota biobliográfica extraídos de «A Circulatura do Quadrado – Alguns dos Mais Belos Sonetos de Poetas cuja Mátria é a Língua Portuguesa. Introdução, coordenação e notas de António Ruivo Mouzinho. Edições Unicepe – Cooperativa Livreira de Estudantes do Porto, 2004.

Quem 60 ao teu lado e 70 por ti,
vai certamente rezar 1/3
para arranjar 1/2 de te levar para 1/4
e ter a coragem de te dizer:
« 20 comer » !!!

Sporting não marcou um único golo na eliminatória

Filed under: Futebol,Sporting,Taça Uefa,Uefa Cup — looking4good @ 9:23 pm

Sporting

0-2

Rangers
Prova que actualmente o campeonato português é fraco…
Pois é! Jogar em casa em fase avançada das provas europeias com um 0-0 fora já não dá favoritismo. A verdade é que a primeira parte foi um jogo táctico com os escoceses a começarem melhor a partida e a criar uma situação de golo aos 4′. O Sporting respondeu com dois lances de perigo: aos 18′ num livre de Romagnoli, Liedson desviou de cabeça, mas a bola bateu no poste e perto do fim um remate de João Moutinho de meia-distância saiu ao lado. Pelo meio, nem o Rangers fez o jogo directo da primeira mão nem o Sporting impôs um jogo mais construido de transporte de bola para a frente com passe curto, porque sempre foi evidente o receio da equipa avançar em bloco e ser apanhada desprevenida.

Na segunda parte o Sporting avançou mais as linhas empurrou o Rangers para a defesa, as preocupações dos escceses aumentavam mas ironia do destino, quando menos se esperava uma intersecção (Veloso – Gladstone ) que não ocorreu na zona do meio-campo deu um contra-ataque (e bastou apenas dois homens) concluído com exito por Darsheville. desfazendo, já então, aí praticamente as esperanças dos «leoezinhos». O Sporting não desistiu é certo continuou a lutar, Paulo Bento fez substituições ofensivas, mas aquele futebol foi insuficiente para bater uma defesa coesa, atenta e forte. Tonel esteve quase a empatar a partida, com um desvio de cabeça que saiu a cm do poste, com o guarda-redes batido, mas a verdade é que não me lembro do guarda-redes escocês ter feito uma única defesa com dificuldade.

Já nos descontos uma jogada individual de Whittaker sozinho foi ameaçando passe mas seguindo sempre com a bola até ao golo.

Este Rangers não é uma equipa de topo da Europa mas é suficiente para derrotar o SAporting, assim como o 6º. classificado do campeonato aleemão o foi para eliminar o campeão de Portugal e um décimo classificado do campeonato espanhol eliminou o Benfica. Temos de convir, que o Campeonato Nacional, chamem-lhe Liga win ou outro nome qualquer está fraco e os bons jogadores portugueses que temos estão em campeonatos estrangeiros.

Resta ao Sporting a Taça de Portugal e lutar pelo segundo lugar da Liga! Mas para esses objectivos ainda há vários adversários…
