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 word E.R.O.T.I.C. is censored, look above, empty space, byt this word must be in between those two words....bit e.r.o.t.i.c. and that for the Great Neruda. I have seen and observed, IF I write this in this way, no censor at all. Thank you!

    Beautiful poem. Love the way immensity is looked from a tiny prism, widening, rising high to embrace the cosmos. (Report)Reply
