I Saw You in the Evening


I saw you in the evening
Where flowers all are glowing
And little birds do sing
Until their time of going
When a heart's aching lonely
And remembering the past
The trust of love that's only
For a moment to last

I once was quite contented
With everything I'd try
But now my feelings are blended
In hours of its goodbye
Through the morning of its bliss
Till the eve of its night
Each remembrance and its kiss
When we meet days bright

I saw you in the evening
And you were further gone
Each memory was bringing
The hours that life had won
But you were in your doubt
If you had done your best
For continuation is all about
What you to love have confessed

Look through pages long-ago
And find those forgotten one
Like flowers they shall glow
Countersigns in its on and on
Through the morning of its bliss
Till the eve of its night
Each remembrance and its kiss
When we meet days bright

Love is forever if it’s true
Never forgotten in its clear
Like break of day always renew
From its rising everywhere
I once was quite contented
With everything I'd try
But now my feelings are blended
In hours of its goodbye

I saw you in the evening
Where flowers all are glowing
And little birds do sing
Until their time of going
When a heart's aching lonely
And remembering the past
The trust of love that's only
For a moment to last

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

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
