Clenched soul by Pablo Neuruda

The Essential Neruda: Selected Poems (Bilingual Edition) (English and Spanish Edition)


We have lost even this twilight
Noone saw us this evening hand in hand
while the blue  night dropped on the world
I have seen from my window
the fiesta of sunset in 
the distant mountain tops
Sometimes a  piece of sun
burned like a coin in my hand

I remembered you with
my soul clenched
in that sadness of mine that you know

Where were you then?
Who else was there?
 Saying what?
 Why will the whole of love come on me suddenly
When I am sad and feel you are far away?
The book fell that always closed at twilight and my blue sweater rolled like
a hurt dog at my feet.

Always , always you recede through the evenings
toward the twilight erasing statues

Pablo Neruda is my favorite poet, hands down. You should read his Sonnet 17 - "I do not love you as if you were salt rose or topaz..."

It is my favorite.
