    To begin with, understanding this poem was difficult, but then I began to look closer at the meaning behind my first impression of this poem and it came to me that it was about the process of actually writing poetry. It tells us that poetry is not something that can be timed but comes to us at any time, whether we are here or there, we cannot decide on its arrival as the words will simply pour out.

    I enjoyed reading this poem. Its cryptic words make it interesting but understandable. At first you don't know what to think whether it is just an ordinary poem or whether it is trying to tell a story!

Best Poem of Pablo Neruda

If You Forget Me

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
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,...

Ode To Sadness

Sadness, scarab
with seven crippled feet,
spiderweb egg,
scramble-brained rat,
bitch's skeleton:
No entry here.
Don't come in.
Go away.
Go back
