    I think this poem is great! It expresses how you can love someone and hate that very person at the same time.Which are the exact feelings I have to face each day at school.This is one of my favorite poems of all time ^_^

    ı f only ı could write a child.poetry is childish songs.poetry is free.without meters

    I think the reason you're not finding the meter and rhyme scheme you're looking for in these works is that they're translations. They weren't originally in English, in Spanish they probably had a different structure.

    I don't wish to take anything away from those who find something in this poet's work, each to their own, but... I get nothing from this body. It is not only written without the art of poetry (mediocre attempts at metre, rhyme, etc at best) but the sentiments are very puerile and the themes a little adolescent, perhaps even trite. I really do not wish to sound a poetry snob, but please, someone explain what he has done to be worthy of number one poet, over Shakespeare, Keats, T.S. Eliot and those who really furthered the art? Help, am I dumb?

    the greatest of all. Who beats Neruda? Maya? Just close but not to Neruda's level. He's my inspiration-my idol!

Best Poem of Pablo Neruda

If You Forget Me

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,...

In My Sky At Twilight

In my sky at twilight you are like a cloud
and your form and colour are the way I love them.
You are mine, mine, woman with sweet lips
and in your life my infinite dreams live.

The lamp of my soul dyes your feet,
the sour wine is sweeter on your lips,
oh reaper of my evening song,
how solitary dreams believe you to be mine!

[Hata Bildir]
