    Wonderful poem. Incidentally, this poem was e-mailed to me through the Modern Poems function of PoemHunter the day after my girlfriend broke up with me. Oddly, it gave me strength to persevere, and it is now one of my favorite poems. (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

  • Rookie Nikolai Morskoi (2/1/2014 9:14:00 PM)

    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
