Pablo Neruda

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

‘Carnal Apple, Woman Filled, Burning Moon,’


Carnal apple, Woman filled, burning moon,
dark smell of seaweed, crush of mud and light,
what secret knowledge is clasped between your pillars?

    Very sensual yet very artistic. Neruda really has a control over abstract and imagery. (Report) Reply

    I really like this poem in it's simplistic approach but yet elitism way he writes. I find a simple choice of subject so delightful in his approach to to address this subject. (Report) Reply

    its on thing one would call the ugly truth of the thesis of life. i have been read most of all your poems and have come up with only one definition of them all which is non, as the efforts put in, creativity and style speak for them selves as they appear their in.(if only it pleases sir i would request that kindly you may visit my page and go through one of my very own, 'More Worth Than A Father', after the share with me your opinion and its from here that i will brief you more about my anticipated 'poetic ball, scheduled to take place on the 29th/09/2012. otherwise all the best and am looking forward to hear from you any time soon. faithfully Buyi Newton Philip.

    I read part of this poem in Wikipedia and Stephen Mitchell translated the line and two bodies ruined by a single sweetness. as and two bodies defeated by a single dropp of honey. which to me sounds so much better. Just giving you my opinion. (Report) Reply

    what secret knowledge is clasped between your pillars? .......
    yet untrodden path of secrets fills apple to fall,
    gravity ramifies anchoring into deep of river,
    gratified heart to emblazon by light of Venus gloss
    oh we are just entwined in between floss of hold..................most thought provoking write i have ever read, (Report) Reply

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
