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

    Welllll. It is difficult to accept that Neruda is gone. His works are alive and living.
    How fortunate for us.

    Neruda is amazing in any language. Some of my favorite lines ever were written by him:
    'the fire for light, a rancorous moon for bread,
    the jasmine smearing around its bruised secrets:
    then from a terrifying love, soft white hands
    poured peace into my eyes and sun into my senses.'

    By far, the greatest poet of the 20th Century!

    Pablo Neruda is the ultimate poet, the king of Latin-American poetry. I read poems from him when I was 8 years old and since then he became my idol. Adore his way to express even the most simplest things can create such breathtaking poems. Always his #1 fan. If I go to heaven, this is the first person I want to meet.

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]
