    my best friend's sister-in-law makes $80 an hour on the internet. She has been unemployed for eight months but last month her paycheck was $19845 just working on the internet for a few hours. Get the facts http: //tr.im/4zzny (Report) Reply

    I love this poem however unrealistically its meaning might be. Feelings of love can't be directed, controlled and dictated as one wishes. Nhat Thuy Vi (Report) Reply

    A love poem with keen feelings of modern mutuality in practical perception. In poet’s predicament, romanticism with crystal moon and autumn at the window is present but realism with wrinkled body of the log is also present. Apart from classical love, life is like that in update mechanical perspectives. Excellent poem! M Mostaqul Haque, Bangladesh (Report) Reply

    Unlike many poems that express the pain and sadness of unrequited love, Neruda instead speaks of a reciprocal love. (Report) Reply

    Yes, so shall it happen even when we say we will not. Vanity is all thee is to it and love is mostly self-love. Somebody said love is a trade - give and it shall be given unto you. but if you do not? Alas and alack, who will start the cycle, who will blame the other? You make me burst into a poem, sir. In merriment and disappointment. I think this is a poem for old men. (Report) Reply

    The imagery is good in this poem and your emotions force their way through as you read this, but it needs a stronger rhyme scheme to be truly implanted in your mind. (Report) Reply

    Ive read about him, and to me it seems like Pablo may have written this about his mother country Chile during the time he was in exile in Argentina after Chile outlawed communism and issued a warrant for his arrest.

    For me, its about a man trying to put on a brave face during a break up, trying to say he'd forget her if she didn't love him, trying to hold on to some manhood and dignity, but admitting to himself that he still would love and want her if she ever came back. a favorite of mine (Report) Reply

    a set of sentences talking of revenge, tit for tat attitude in love...i wonder if the poem goes well down the throat of all.. (Report) Reply

  • Rookie Lee B. (11/27/2013 9:29:00 PM)

    This is a very mature attitude toward love that is realistic not masochistic. To be in love means having the other person in it with you. If the other does not reciprocate, the mutual love has died. Thank you, Neruda. Maybe one day I can see it this way and enjoy what is beautiful not what was once. (Report) Reply
