and the Snowball Earrings created by juiceglass
That's a lot of free stuff! And free stuff worth having!
I went searching for a poem-a-day widget for my blog. Anyone know where I can find one? I want a good one that will pull up poems from poets that I like and am familiar with plus ones that I don't know. Anyway, in the search I found this. I love Neruda-- he can create a mood like few others! And some of his imagery! Well-- see for yourself!
Here I love you
by Pablo Neruda

Here I love you.
In the dark pines the wind disentangles itself.
The moon glows like phosphorous on the vagrant waters.
Days, all one kind, go chasing each other.

The snow unfurls in dancing figures.
A silver gull slips down from the west.
Sometimes a sail. High, high stars.
Oh the black cross of a ship.

Sometimes I get up early and even my soul is wet.
Far away the sea sounds and resounds.
This is a port.

Here I love you.
Here I love you and the horizon hides you in vain.
I love you still among these cold things.
Sometimes my kisses go on those heavy vessels
that cross the sea towards no arrival.
I see myself forgotten like those old anchors.

The piers sadden when the afternoon moors there.
My life grows tired, hungry to no purpose.
I love what I do not have. You are so far.
My loathing wrestles with the slow twilights.
But night comes and starts to sing to me.

The moon turns its clockwork dream.
The biggest stars look at me with your eyes.
And as I love you, the pines in the wind
want to sing your name with their leaves of wire.

And my latest Treasury: It's a Blue, Blue Rapture
