“IF YOU FORGET ME

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
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me

Absence:

My love,
we have found each other
thirsty and we have
drunk up all the water and the blood,
we found each other
hungry
and we bit each other
as fire bites,
leaving wounds in us.


hold me close, recite this in Spanish and watch me melt...

Always

I am not jealous
of what came before me.

Come with a man
on your shoulders,
come with a hundred men in your hair,
come with a thousand men between your breasts and your feet,
come like a river
full of drowned men
which flows down to the wild sea,
to the eternal surf, to Time!

Bring them all
to where I am waiting for you;
we shall always be alone,
we shall always be you and I
alone on earth,
to start our life!

One of my favorites of Many.....

"If You Forget Me"

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

But

each hour,

Only lovers can accept the pink cover
And gold, curvy lettering
And accept them as non-hyperbolic,
As a necessity,
As the color and script of the island
Where the wind gallops like a horse
And where not even night can separate them.

Singletons will like the slender shape,
The back pocket worthiness
Of the hand sized rectangles
Of downed trees.
They will compliment the translation,
Or else,
They will scoff at the color of sunset
And discard this volume for one that is more
Economical with its words-

Το καλύτερο και με διαφορά δείγμα ερωτικής ποίησης του Πάμπλο Νερούδα (με εξαίρεση το Una canción desesperada). Προσωπικά μπόρεσα να κατανοήσω το μεγαλείο της ερωτικής ποίησης του Νερούδα μονάχα όταν μεγάλωσα και παρόλο ότι είμαι μεγάλη θαυμάστρια της πολιτικο-κοινωνικής και ιστορικής τους ποίησης, όσο και του ποιητικού του έργου για τη φύση, την εξέλιξη της ζωής, την ποίηση κλπ, μπορώ να πω με σιγουριά πια ότι λατρεύω και την ερωτική του πλευρά εξίσου με τις υπόλοιπες...

One of my all-time favorites.

I love its compact size. I love the pink cover with the gold lettering and beautiful font. I love that the English translation sits side-by-side with the Spanish translation. It's a mood lifter and most definitely swoon-worthy.

Can you imagine if someone recited these poems to you in the original Spanish? Ugh. Pants = off.

Tropecei num poema (ou parte dele) um dia destes e tive imensa vontade de ler a obra poética ao qual pertencia: esta. É uma edição bilingue de espanhol e inglês.
Nunca fui leitora de poesia, é algo que acho bonito e do mais difícil de produzir na arte. Em poucas linhas é possível dizer tanta coisa...
Na escola, não houve incentivo à poesia, quando líamos um poema de Pessoa ele dizia-nos determinada coisa mas a professora dizia que não, não era esse o sentido. Sempre achei que a poesia tem um senti

Gosto quando te calas

Gosto quando te calas porque estás como ausente,
e me ouves de longe, minha voz não te toca.
Parece que os olhos tivessem de ti voado
e parece que um beijo te fechara a boca.

Como todas as coisas estão cheias da minha alma
emerge das coisas, cheia da minha alma.
Borboleta de sonho, pareces com minha alma,
e te pareces com a palavra melancolia.

Gosto de ti quando calas e estás como distante.
E estás como que te queixando, borboleta em arrulho.
E me ouves de longe, e a minha voz não te

we found each other

Love Poems is a collection of Neruda's poetry based around the common theme of, you guessed it, L-O-V-E. The poetry in this collection is quite modest in a profoundly melodramatic way which is quite unusual; me thinking the t

I fell in love with this book. Neruda houses so much passion, so much deeply enthralling love that you wish you could meet him and hold his hand and fall in love with him too.

I highlighted my favorite sections. Here they are:

“But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.”
—an excerpt from Your Feet (Love Poems)

O que escrever, depois da deliciosa leitura desta preciosidade...
Deixo-vos as palavras sublimes deste homem que escreveu o amor, como nenhum outro.

SI TÚ ME OLVIDAS
QUIERO que sepas
una cosa.
Tú sabes cómo es esto:
si miro
la luna de cristal, la rama roja
del lento otoño en mi ventana,
si toco
junto al fuego
la impalpable ceniza
o el arrugado cuerpo de la leña,
todo me lleva a ti,
como si todo lo que existe,
aromas, luz, metales,
fueran pequeños barcos que navegan
hacia las islas tuyas que me aguardan.

A beautifull collection of poems by one of my favorite poets.
Neruda's words are entrancing and I have loved every second spent wrapped up in his lyrical voice.



This is probably one of my favorite poems in the collection:


Farewell

Desde el fondo de ti, y arrodillado,
un niño triste, como yo, nos mira.

Por esa vida que arderá en sus venas
tendrían que amarrarse nuestras vidas.

Por esas manos, hijas de tus manos,
tendrían que matar las manos mías.

And one by one the nights
between our separated cities
are joined to the night that unites us.
The light of each day,
its flame or its repose,
they deliver to us, taking them from time,
and so our treasure
is disinterred in shadow or light,
and so our kisses kiss life:
all love is enclosed in our love:
all thirst ends in our embrace.
Here we are at last face to face,
we have met,
we have lost nothing

I usually love reading Neruda, but I wasn't too crazy about the translation or the selection of poems in this book.

Rating: 2.5 stars

I received this book along with his more illustrious one as a Christmas present. I expect to enjoy the other more because it is more diverse. The main problem I had with these poems is that they all sounded the same: nature imagery and romance being the key concepts. I have no problem with all these poems revolving around these topics because it is a book of love poems, but almost every poem mentions concepts of "fire," "spring," abstract body parts, etc.

Neruda is a touchstone, one of the half-dozen or so poets I return to again and again, whenever my days darken or my inspiration needs replenishing. His reputation is set in stone, enormously influential, his words beloved, making sense of sensuality, words that will continue to ring out for as long as poetry is read.
I started in on this one without realising that it has plundered its contents from the much more substantial – and really quite magnificent – 'The Captain's Verses', so this is real

deny me bread, air,

The first time I read Pablo Neruda, my heart ached in the best way. This is why:

1. “I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul.”
2. “So I wait for you like a lonely house till you will see me again and live in me. Till then my windows ache.”
3. “In this part of the story I am the one who dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you, because I love you, Love, in fire and in blood.”

When I spotted Love Poems on Book Outlet, I knew I had to buy it. The book is what I consider a tiny book and I absolutely love those! Just think, you can carry this one around with you in your purse or bag and read it at any time. I think it would also make for a nice gift if you have friends who also enjoy reading poetry or are also big fans of Neruda. It's also designed in a lovely, feminine style with its pink cover and gold lettering and scrolling.

Fabulous. Of course I haven't 'finished' this book. I want to re-read anytime I feel lacking for romantic inspiration, and I want to read Neruda in the original Spanish once I'm competent enough to do so. Gorgeous imagery, language, & phrasing.

Un libro eccezionale di poesia di Pablo Neruda, rappresentato magnificamente in Italiano!

Leggi in Italiano da Alberto Rossatti, questo audiolibro contiene testi in Italiano e Spagnolo. Leggi entrambi per una esperienza formidabile. Inoltre, ascolta la voce ipnotizzante di Rossatti che porta la sensualità già per queste poesie d'amore sensuali.

In sintesi, queste poesie sono sublimi e bellissime.

Neruda can do no wrong by me. This version has the English and Spanish versions and,of course, the Spanish version is always the best version. So if you like delicate, yet earthy lines that describe the intimacies of love, then this is the right poem book for you. This little roselet book has my favorite love poems by Neruda. I'll continue to come back to it.

Pablo Neruda was the pen name and, later, legal name of the Chilean writer and politician Neftalí Ricardo Reyes Basoalto. Neruda assumed his pen name as a teenager, partly because it was in vogue, partly to hide his poetry from his father, a rigid man who wanted his son to have a "practical" occupation. Neruda's pen name was derived from Czech writer and poet Jan Neruda; Pablo is thought to be fro ...more

“I have named you queen.
There are taller than you, taller.
There are purer than you, purer.
There are lovelier than you, lovelier.
But you are the queen.

When you go through the streets
No one recognizes you.
No one sees your crystal crown, no one looks
At the carpet of red gold
That you tread as you pass,
The nonexistent carpet.

And when you appear
All the rivers sound
In my body, bells
Shake the sky,
And a hymn fills the world.

Only you and I,
Only you and I, my love,
Listen to it.”
