Laughter helps to take away the solitudes of life, it brings something better to " The game of life."

The most important thing in our daily life is laughter.It matters not what financial crisis you undergo but that laughter cures the soul.

Take bread away from me, if you wish, take air away, but do not take from me your laughter. Do not take away the rose, the lance flower that you pluck, the water that suddenly bursts forth in joy, the sudden wave of silver born in you. - - - One of the most beautiful poem on love.

Part 7 Again, how I regret that I can not read Spanish. Just enough Spanish to read and enjoy this poem in original. I could give my life for that boon, if God we’re benevolent enough.

Part 6 And he closes the poem quite emotionally: “when I open my eyes and close them, when my steps go, when my steps return, deny me bread, air, light, spring, but never your laughter for I would die. ”

Part 5 And how does the poet describes himself? A “clumsy boy who loves you”. That he is sceptical whether he deserves her love! He even thinks that he could be an object of her laughter. But he does not detest being laughed at by her. He is satisfied on being noticed by her even if it for laughing at him. Contd.

Part 4 The metaphor in the fourth stanza takes one by surprise: “in the spring, love, I want your laughter like the flower I was waiting for, the blue flower, the rose of my echoing country.” A train of metaphors, again drawn from nature. “Your laughter is the flower I have been waiting for. “ But the reference to “the blue flower, the Rose of my echoing country”! ! !

Part 3 The third stanza states how rejuvenating is “your laughter “ for me. We may read “your love “ here. States, how it would raise the poet to the skies, even at times of tiredness and despair. And then, “if suddenly you see my blood staining the stones of the street, laugh, because your laughter will be for my hands like a fresh sword.” How he chooses his words! Contd...

Part 2 The second stanza is replete with choicest metaphors for “your laughter “...., inimitable one-better-than-the-other. And the great poet does not present these metaphors as such. He conceals them in his inimitable way. In the whole poem, the poet speaks of “your laughter “, and not love. But it is of “your love”that the poem is all about, as one can easily understand. Contd....

What a beautiful poem of love! How the eternal lover, Neruda expresses the emotion of love! “Take the bread away from me, if you wish Take the air.... But do not take your laughter”.... This stanza states how important her love and laughter are for him. Contd....

My love, your lover is but a communist boy, I definitely love you, but your laughter is but my property, wherever go I take I with clutching along, but when when away from, you surely try to go through the pages of the book of communism which i gifted to you.
