Adrienne Stapleton I was just reading Neruda's Ode to Common Things. When he exclaims, "Ay, alma mía, hermoso es el planeta," I feel that the walls fall down and the veil that obscures the wonder of the world is pulled back.

Judy How wonderful for you, para mi es el poema, Oda al gato- largos decola,tristes de cabaeza....Sus ojos amarillos dejaron una sola ranura para echar las monedas le la noche.

I'm looking at The brief wondrous life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz next.
