(12 July 1904 – 23 September 1973 / Parral / Chile)

‘Carnal Apple, Woman Filled, Burning Moon,’


Carnal apple, Woman filled, burning moon,
dark smell of seaweed, crush of mud and light,
what secret knowledge is clasped between your pillars?

    The mans words translate into the sensuality of an artistic orgasm, people with high moral value may not like this, but for those who value truth and beauty this is great stuff/ (Report) Reply

    Such a passionate write. Full of love and sweetness.
    Every word dripping with honey. Your way with words
    is excellent. Touche. (Report) Reply

    Very sensual yet very artistic. Neruda really has a control over abstract and imagery. (Report) Reply

    I really like this poem in it's simplistic approach but yet elitism way he writes. I find a simple choice of subject so delightful in his approach to to address this subject. (Report) Reply

    its on thing one would call the ugly truth of the thesis of life. i have been read most of all your poems and have come up with only one definition of them all which is non, as the efforts put in, creativity and style speak for them selves as they appear their in.(if only it pleases sir i would request that kindly you may visit my page and go through one of my very own, 'More Worth Than A Father', after the share with me your opinion and its from here that i will brief you more about my anticipated 'poetic ball, scheduled to take place on the 29th/09/2012. otherwise all the best and am looking forward to hear from you any time soon. faithfully Buyi Newton Philip.

    I read part of this poem in Wikipedia and Stephen Mitchell translated the line and two bodies ruined by a single sweetness. as and two bodies defeated by a single dropp of honey. which to me sounds so much better. Just giving you my opinion. (Report) Reply

    Are you serious? These disgusting comments have to stop. Your sexual slurs about such a great poet make me want to puke. If you really like Neruda, say so without being a perv.
