    Tomorrow we will only give them a leaf of the tree of our love; my favourite line; kudos and kudos comrade Neftali (Report) Reply

    people always have a say about how to water your garden...what flower to plant.... leaving their own gardens uncatered.
    this poem shows depth of love...that chooses, notwithstanding faults and grave pasts...... it is a beautiful poem
    nothing hopelessly petrarchan..or metaphysical.... but a genuine poem. (Report) Reply

    SEE...This is why Neruda is my favorite poet of 'all time'...


    And because love battles
    not only in its burning agricultures
    but also in the mouth of men and women,
    I will finish off by taking the path away
    to those who between my chest and your fragrance
    want to interpose their obscure plant. (Report) Reply

    About me, nothing worse
    they will tell you, my love,
    than what I told you.

    Wow, what a cool poem, especially the last paragraph - a magnificent ending! Love should be personal, and it's value and depth not influenced and touched by a cruel world... (Report) Reply

    The last paragraph, My god the voice of the master of emotion, i feel his work sometimes so heavily that it makes me cry with joy that there once a man alive not afraid to write the truth of true love, so never relenting in the mind in the beholder yet so fleeting.

    He knew no fear,

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
