        Pablo Neruda

        Had no idea what he looked like before I looked him up, he looks like he would be someone's grumpy accountant, not a poet

              First poem that Ever moved me was " Prayer Before Birth" By louis Macneice !

              I was very young maybe 8 or 9 and our teacher read it out in class , I remember there was nothing else in the world only those words coming out of his mouth and the end Bit "let them not make me a stone and let them not spill me. Otherwise kill me."
              I never forgot ! so moving for a little kid that understood little about the world and war

                  Meliai Sad is not always bad - it helps to let the bad feelings go. What has made you so sad?

                    I'm not sad (right now) lol, but I do like sad poems
                    It's a romantic poem about love lost. Neruda seems like the epitome of a romantic which is why it was surprising he looks like a curmudgeonly, staid man haha. I kinda expected him to be sexayyyy

                      Meliai Well, you know I'm a Buddhist... haha. So I think sex is fun but over rated. However, this song speaks to many:

                        Meliai Oh, you did an edit before I got to take a peek... haha. So you can read Neruda in the original? Impressive!! I only do English, and I'm sure much is lost in translation big time. Am I right?

                          Nah I know very rudimentary Spanish but I definitely had to look up the translation
                          Sounds much prettier en Español

                        “Welcome Morning"

                        There is joy
                        in all:
                        in the hair I brush each morning,
                        in the Cannon towel, newly washed,
                        that I rub my body with each morning,
                        in the chapel of eggs I cook
                        each morning,
                        in the outcry from the kettle
                        that heats my coffee
                        each morning,
                        in the spoon and the chair
                        that cry "hello there, Anne"
                        each morning,
                        in the godhead of the table
                        that I set my silver, plate, cup upon
                        each morning.

                        All this is God,
                        right here in my pea-green house
                        each morning
                        and I mean,
                        though often forget,
                        to give thanks,
                        to faint down by the kitchen table
                        in a prayer of rejoicing
                        as the holy birds at the kitchen window
                        peck into their marriage of seeds.

                        So while I think of it,
                        let me paint a thank-you on my palm
                        for this God, this laughter of the morning,
                        lest it go unspoken.

                        The Joy that isn't shared, I've heard,
                        dies young.”


                        ― Anne Sexton

                          I love a lot of Spanish music, even though I don't understand all the words. This is my favorite one:
