    Waters of March Swap - Open Media - Due April 12th, 2021

    Swap Due Date: April 12th, 2021
    Sign Up date: By April 2nd, 2021
    Withdrawal deadline: none, but please communicate!
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: unlimited
    Media: Open

    Waters of March Swap - open media - due April 12th.

    This swap celebrates the very famous Brazilian Song "The Waters of March" originally written by Antonio Carlos Jobim in 1972. This song is more like a collage of images; it is full on nouns and visuals. Enough to make a swap if a few people are willing to join me.

    1_20210207_154916_copy_894x1257.jpg 1_20210207_155119_copy_890x1292.jpg 1_20210207_155058_copy_825x1186.jpg

    Here is the original by Jobim. There is both a Portuguese and English version. Here is the English version.
    It has been remade many, many times. One of my favorites is by Anya Maria. She does a pretty version that is a mix of Portuguese and English.

    Swap Requirements ~
    1. Each card must have two elements:
    A. At least one image that is mentioned in the song.
    B. A music note to indicate it is coming from a song. It can be one subtle note, a full bar, your choice.
    2. All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”
    3. This swap is 3 for 3. An extra card for the host is always welcome and appreciated, but completely optional.

    More about card design
    *You can put words or multiple other images in your cards.
    *I will put the lyrics into the next post so you can easily see them.
    *There are multiple versions of this song. If you want to use a line that isn't from the original that is fine, just indicate on the back of your card which version of the song it came from.

    Other stuff

    Mailing Information ~
    * Include username, real name, your state/country and the swap name on the back of all cards - and put username and swap name on all envelopes sent.
    * US Participants – Please include a clearly written mailing label and stamp. This is what I prefer. If you send a SASE I'll use it, but not my first choice.
    * International Participants - Please send a mailing label and I will cover postage. Again, I'll take an envelop, but not my first choice.
    *Late cards past a day or so will be returned.
    *I mostly try to swap effort for effort, but this is dependent on the cards I receive.

    *When you receive your returns, please leave I-Trader for your swap host and rep points for the artists of the cards you receive. Also, in your rep points, naming which card you received is nice, since people like to know where their artworks end up.

    Purple. You've gotten your returns

    Google translate can help with the Portuguese if you do not know the language.

    pau, pedra
    o fim do caminho
    um resto de toco
    um pouco sozinho
    A stick, a stone
    It's the end of the road
    It's feeling alone
    It's the weight of your load
    It's a sliver of glass
    It's life, it's the sun
    It is night, it is death
    It's a knife, it's a gun
    A flower that blooms
    A fox in the brush
    A knot in the wood
    The song of a thrush
    The mistery of life
    The steps in the hall
    The sound of the wind
    And the waterfall
    It's the moon floating free
    It's the curve of the slope
    It's an ant, it's a be
    It's a reason for hope
    And the riverbank sings
    Of the waters of march
    It's the promise of spring
    It's the joy in your heart
    o p, o cho
    a marcha estradeira
    Passarinho na mo
    Pedra de atiradeira
    uma ave no cu
    uma ave no cho
    um regato, uma fonte
    um pedao de po
    o fundo do poo
    O fim do caminho
    No rosto, o desgosto
    Um pouco sozinho
    A spear, a spike
    A stake, a nail
    It's a drip, it's a drop
    It's the end of the tale
    A dew on the leaf
    In the morning light
    The shot of a gun
    In the dead of the night
    A mile, a must
    A thrust, a bump
    It's the will to survive
    It's a jolt, it's a jump
    A blueprint of a house
    A body in bed
    The car stuck in the mud
    It's the mud, it's the mud
    A fish, a flash
    A wish, a wink
    It's a hawk, it's a dove
    It's the promise of spring
    And the riverbanks sings
    Of the waters of march
    It's the end of despair
    It's the joy in your heart
    pau, pedra
    o fim do caminho
    um resto de toco
    um pouco sozinho
    uma cobra, um pau
    joo, Jos
    um espinho na mo
    um corte no p
    So as guas de Maro
    Fechando o vero
    a promessa de vida
    No teu corao
    A stick, a stone
    It's the end of the road
    The stump of a tree
    It's a frog, it's a toad
    A sight of breath
    A walk, a run
    A life, a death
    A ray in the sun
    And the riverbank sings
    Of the waters of march
    It's the promise of life
    It's the joy in your heart
    So as guas de Maro
    Fechando o vero
    a promessa de vida
    No teu corao
    pau, pedra
    o fim do caminho
    um resto de toco
    um pouco sozinho
    pau, pedra
    o fim do caminho
    um resto de toco
    um pouco sozinho

    Whenever they were singing that song together, they would have a lot of fun! Always a treat to revisit this version.

    I'm going to be a maybe for now. I just listened to the song and can see the possibilities. I'll see what I can do before committing.

    A little more than a year ago, "I Saw a Peacock" was my first swap on ATCs For All.
    I've now completed 43 swaps. I have improved.
    I'd like to join another "Literary Swap."
    Please sign me up!

    I just listened to the Art Garfunkel version. Definitely the same structure, but definitely some additional verses to pull from if that interested you. It is a nice version, very much feels like it is from the 70s. There is another version or two I might post about. I had thoughts about doing a running commentary after listening to each version I didn't know, but that seems a bit indulgent!
