English Translations of songs from Dr. Paul's Classic Hour of 8/5/09

Giunse alfin il desio / At Last Comes the Moment...Come Hurry My Love

At comes the moment
when, without reserve, I can rejoice
in my lovers arms:
timid scruples, hence from my heart,
and do not come to trouble my delight

Oh how the spirit of this place,
the earth and the sky, seem
to echo the fire of my love!
How the night furthers my stealth!

Come, hurry, my beloved,
to the desire of the one who adores you!
I shall die if you leave me
still to sigh in vain.

Oh, my darling, remember
Your promises, your vows!
And those moments of solace

Portrait of a Motor Car by Carl Sandburg
IT’S a lean car … a long-legged dog of a car … a gray-ghost eagle car.
The feet of it eat the dirt of a road … the wings of it eat the hills.
Danny the driver dreams of it when he sees women in red skirts and red sox in his sleep.
It is in Danny’s life and runs in the blood of him … a lean gray-ghost car.

Speech to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis

July 19, 2009

Good morning. My name is Autumn Labbé-Renault. I’m a UUCD member and executive director of the non-profit organization Davis Media Access, home of KDRT 95.7 FM, our community’s low-power radio station. I’ve been asked to share a bit about my involvement in starting and sustaining KDRT, or as I like to call it, “the little radio station that could.”

Lyrics to "Lovely Moon, Your Silver Light"

Lovely Moon, your silver light
shines on these banks and these flowers,
you inspire the elements
to the language of love;
you alone are witness
to my ardent desire,
and tell the one I love
of my beating heart and my sighing.

Tell her that distance
cannot ease my pain,
and that if I cherish one hope
it is for the future alone.
Tell her too that day and night
I count the hours of pain,
and that one tempting hope
comforts me in love
