Poetry – Happy St. Valentine’s Day – Love Sonnet: XVII – A Poem by Pablo Neruda

The image depicts a photograph titled Red Rose for St. Valentine's Day by the photographer Goff James.. The work is a colour photo of a single red rose. Superimposed upon the image is athe greeting:
Happy St. Valentine's Day 2022. Have a great day.

Love Sonnet: XVII by Pablo Neruda

Translated by Mark Eisner

I don’t love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz,
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:

I love you as one loves certain obscure things,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that doesn’t bloom but carries
the light of those flowers, hidden, within itself,

and thanks to your love the tight aroma that arose
from the earth lives dimly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you directly without problems or pride:

I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,
except in this form in which I am not nor are you,
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.

Moonlight Rhapsody by Goff James

Neath midnight’s mighty darkened sky
Rising luminous clouds I glance.

O’er nectared hill tops wisp winged fairies fly.
Seduced, imbibed I join their sacred dance.

Neath starlight’s sapphire cosmic vault
Sweet perfumed breeze my being fills.

Such beauteous stillness, mind and eyes exalt.
Eve-tide’s lullaby weary soul distills.

Neath plum trees silvered blossomed boughs
I watch the stars immortal blest.

Snow pearled petals fall. Peaceful rest endows.
Pon earth’s verdant pillow, my head, I rest.

Neath moonbeams failing floodlit rays,
Twixt dawn’s burning breaths, morn conceived.

Bliss filled rivered dreams flow and fade away.
Life’s transient mortality perceived.
