In You The Earth - Poem by Pablo Neruda

Little
rose,
roselet,
at times,
tiny and naked,
it seems
as though you would fit
in one of my hands,
as though I’ll clasp you like this
and carry you to my mouth,
but
suddenly
my feet touch your feet and my mouth your lips:
you have grown,
your shoulders rise like two hills,
your breasts wander over my breast,
my arm scarcely manages to encircle the thin
new-moon line of your waist:
in love you loosened yourself like sea water:
I can scarcely measure the sky’s most spacious eyes
and I lean down to your mouth to kiss the earth.

    My poem is way better, it goes like this

    Are you ready kids? Aye Aye Captain
    I can't hear you! AYE AYE CAPTAIN
    Oohh...
    Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
    Spongebob Squarepants
    Absorbant and yellow and porous is he!
    Spongebob Squarepants
    If nautical nonsense be something you wish
    Spongebob Squarepants
    Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish!
    Spongebob Squarepants
    READY?
