The water bearer of Andean tears
The fire floats on water

    Such eloquent verse penned with great economy and a superb choice of words. I don't know if you've heard Neruda's poem, Canto General, set to music by Mikis Theodorakis. It is one of my favourite works. A a passionate overture to the Chilean people - a plea for acceptance as well as an attempt to effect a musical amalgamation of two cultures (Chile and Greece) . love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

    A fine three line tribute to Neruda. How wonderful that his words have not been forgotten. By our words we live, by our words we also survive.

    Warm regards,
