Treasure Island

Pablo Neruda

(12 July 1904 – 23 September 1973 / Parral / Chile)

Always


I am not jealous
of what came before me.

Come with a man
on your shoulders,
come with a hundred men in your hair,
come with a thousand men between your breasts and your feet,
come like a river
full of drowned men
which flows down to the wild sea,
to the eternal surf, to Time!

Bring them all
to where I am waiting for you;
we shall always be alone,
we shall always be you and I
alone on earth,
to start our life!

    What a wonderful poet. If people knew how his simplicity accesses the profound, no one would ever want to believe or buy a greeting card again- much less live their lives like one. (Report) Reply

    It's the way he uses his words to evoke emotion from me that gets me... (Report) Reply
