    Sonnet Xvii

    I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul. I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the light of...

    One of My Favorite Love Poems By Pablo Neruda

    Drunk as drunk on turpentine    From your open kisses,   Your wet body wedged    Between my wet body and the strake    Of our boat that is made out of flowers,    Feasted, we guide it - our fingers    Like tallows...

    Your Laughter

    Take bread away from me, if you wish, take air away, but do not take from me your laughter. Do not take away the rose, the lance flower that you pluck, the water that suddenly bursts forth in joy, the sudden wave of silver born in you. My struggle is harsh and I come...

    The Saddest Lines Is Really Powerful..

    Tonight I can write the saddest lines. Write, for example, 'The night is starry and the stars are blue and shiver in the distance.' The night wind revolves in the sky and sings. Tonight I can write the saddest lines. I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too...

    Poem 15

    Poem 15 I like for you to be still: it is as though you were absent, and you hear me from far away and my voice does not touch you. It seems as though your eyes had flown away and it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth. As all things are filled with my soul you emerge from...

    Walking Around

    It so happens I am sick of being a Man. And it happens that I walk into tailor shops and movie houses dried up, waterproof, like a swan made of felt steering my way in a water of wombs and ashes. The smell of barbershops makes me break into hoarse sobs. The only thing I...

    Don't go far off, not even

    for a day, because I don't know how to say it - a day is long and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep. -Pablo Neruda, Poet

    I Want To Do With You

    what Spring does with the cherry trees... : ) This was the first Neruda line I heard, but I also misheard it. I thought the narrator said: "I want to do to you what the wind does to the cherry trees" which on reflection is certainly different! Can't say I was disappointed...
