To See The Sun

To see the sun is to see a lamp constructed from ice,
This ice is overbearing for it commands the strength
Of thousands and millions, billions and trillions do upset.
From the star in the sky we observe the wonders of this world,
Seeing them is talking with marches and strong measures,
Miracles must be achieved under the sun to gain acceptance,
As the world revolves around the lovely comrade of the sky.

To see the sun is my own risk and deed, for it shines
From the heart and whole diseases contaminate the earth
And soil with its brilliance, from the heart we have said.
Forcing the sun to glare at the soil is to entice the heart
Inside to speak to itself, and see and see and see.
For thousands of years the sun is dealt with pride,
For shining stars wonderfully propel us in might,
Like a word that explains everything.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

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
