    I think this poem is great! It expresses how you can love someone and hate that very person at the same time.Which are the exact feelings I have to face each day at school.This is one of my favorite poems of all time ^_^

    I think the reason you're not finding the meter and rhyme scheme you're looking for in these works is that they're translations. They weren't originally in English, in Spanish they probably had a different structure.

    I don't wish to take anything away from those who find something in this poet's work, each to their own, but... I get nothing from this body. It is not only written without the art of poetry (mediocre attempts at metre, rhyme, etc at best) but the sentiments are very puerile and the themes a little adolescent, perhaps even trite. I really do not wish to sound a poetry snob, but please, someone explain what he has done to be worthy of number one poet, over Shakespeare, Keats, T.S. Eliot and those who really furthered the art? Help, am I dumb?

    the greatest of all. Who beats Neruda? Maya? Just close but not to Neruda's level. He's my inspiration-my idol!

    Your poetry is pouring your heart on paper,
    It, s pure Love, your a poet of the heart.

Ode To Wine

Day-colored wine,
night-colored wine,
wine with purple feet
or wine with topaz blood,
wine,
starry child
of earth,
wine, smooth
as a golden sword,

[Hata Bildir]
