    Neruda is one of my favorite poets! I am inspired by the beauty of description he so masterfully crafts in his poems!

    We have a poet here in Bangladesh named Kazi Nazrul Islam like Pablo Neruda. Neruda is great, undoubtedly. But Nazrul is greater. I will request all to read the poems of Nazrul. He is the national poet of Bangladesh. All great poets are the wealth of the world.

    In How I met your mother Teds favorite poem was Sonnet XXVII: Naked You Are As Simple as one of your Hands

    He's the best poet for me.

    this is probably a stupid question but here goes - the first time I heard this poetry was on an episode of 'how I met your Mother' and I was wondering if anybody knows the poem I am talking about - I have been trying to find it - it was astounding

    I love Neruda, yet to get the full meaning of his poetry you have to see it in it's Spanish version as well.

Best Poem of Pablo Neruda

If You Forget Me

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,...

Read the full of If You Forget Me


Do you remember when
in winter
we reached the island?
The sea raised toward us
a crown of cold.
On the walls the climbing vines
murmured letting
dark leaves fall
as we passed.
