My dog has died.
I buried him in the garden
next to a rusted old machine.

    First time reading any piece by Pablo Neruda. Fell in love with the poem. Poem kept me entranced from beginning to end. No wonder he was so popular (still popular) .

    Nicely penned with soulful expression.

    Weird. I have had many dogs and all of them were quite affectionate. Perhaps the dog picked up on Neruda's lack of love, and reciprocated.

    It's far worse than his dog's vomit.

    The greatest poet of the 20th century, in any language.

    this is Marxism of Marxism; it is a sharp way of explaining class conflict, i eguate it to the satire of V S Naipual; the house for mr biswas

    impeccably explained! ! I'm an admirer for this one..
    Unconditional and detached love of a dog..with no exaggerated dressing on display or any boundaries watsoever; the animal's love is a true one..! Hence, no regrets even after death...Beautiful..

    Unforgetable poem. Work of a true master. Neruda makes poetry so easy! Moving and poignant poem. The more you read Neruda, the more you fall in love with him. Great!

    If you like poems about dogs, read Unleashed, a book of poems written by writer's dogs.
