Your Feet Poem by Pablo Neruda

Your Feet

Rating: 3.8

When I cannot look at your face
I look at your feet.
Your feet of arched bone,
your hard little feet.
I know that they support you,
and that your sweet weight
rises upon them.
Your waist and your breasts,
the doubled purple
of your nipples,
the sockets of your eyes
that have just flown away,
your wide fruit mouth,
your red tresses,
my little tower.
But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.

Obviously, Neruda was not speaking of you.

Is this the only poem written to the feet? Who knew it would be so sensual and so full of love

The part about looking at the persons made me cry out in laughter (yes I am very immature) .
