‘march Days Return With Their Covert Light’ Poem by Pablo Neruda

‘march Days Return With Their Covert Light’

Rating: 2.7

March days return with their covert light,
and huge fish swim through the sky,
vague earthly vapours progress in secret,
things slip to silence one by one.
Through fortuity, at this crisis of errant skies,
you reunite the lives of the sea to that of fire,
grey lurchings of the ship of winter
to the form that love carved in the guitar.
O love, O rose soaked by mermaids and spume,
dancing flame that climbs the invisible stairway,
to waken the blood in insomnia’s labyrinth,
so that the waves can complete themselves in the sky,
the sea forget its cargoes and rages,
and the world fall into darkness’s nets.

'insomnia's labyrinth': Wow just wow! ! Just one catch phrase makes the whole poem a piece of jewel.

the sea forget its cargoes and rages, and the world fall into darkness’s nets. Words that ring in your ears for ages., inflict a mournful pain..
