    Welllll. It is difficult to accept that Neruda is gone. His works are alive and living.
    How fortunate for us.

    Neruda is amazing in any language. Some of my favorite lines ever were written by him:
    'the fire for light, a rancorous moon for bread,
    the jasmine smearing around its bruised secrets:
    then from a terrifying love, soft white hands
    poured peace into my eyes and sun into my senses.'
    ~love sonnet XXIII

    By far, the greatest poet of the 20th Century!

    Pablo Neruda is the ultimate poet, the king of Latin-American poetry. I read poems from him when I was 8 years old and since then he became my idol. Adore his way to express even the most simplest things can create such breathtaking poems. Always his #1 fan. If I go to heaven, this is the first person I want to meet.

    Brilliant.

    These poems are they tyke and kind of poems that I would love to write.

    He truly is a great poet.

    I think something needed for a good or a great poet is the ability to experience something more sensitively or vividly than most, to be able to 'take in' the moment or experience to such an extent that you can reproduce it as it were on paper or in writing for other people to experience it themselves...

    Our friend Pablo definitely has that gift.

    Ahhh, such pleasure and pain all wrapped up ever so cleverly. I admire Pablos bold and raw honesty...

    pablo leaves space between his words for us mortals to get closer with nature and dance with it. pablo through his words enable us to dance with nature and share its beauty and lightl.

    it's all very well saying, leave his poems in spanish, what about us ignorant oafs? ? ? if they weren't translated, how much i would have missed out on. it does make me angry that there are lines missing from some of his poems on here. get it sorted please.
