April Poetry Dare – Week 4

April 27, 2014 by Jen

This April, in honor of National Poetry Month, I accepted a poetry dare from TweetSpeakPoetry: to read a poem every day of the month and share it with my friends. I opted for the challenge of reading a single poet per week, alternating between historical and contemporary poets.

Here’s a day-by-day list of what I read during week 4. Learn more about my chosen poet, Pablo Neruda (1904-1973), here.

Day 21 – “Morning (Love Sonnet XXVII)” by Pablo Neruda

 “As if down a long tunnel of clothing and of chores;
Your clear light dims, gets dressed, drops its leaves,”

Day 22 – “Ode to Salt” by Pablo Neruda

 “Dust of the sea, in you
the tongue receives a kiss
from ocean night:”

Day 23 – “Discoverers” by Pablo Neruda, Tran. Angel Flores

 “Night, snow and sand make the form
of my slim fatherland,
all silence is in its long line,”

Day 24 – “Tonight I Can Write” by Pablo Neruda

 “And the verse falls to the soul like dew to the pasture.”

Day 25 – “The Dictators” by Pablo Neruda

 “The weeping cannot be seen, like a plant
whose seeds fall endlessly on the earth,”

Day 26 – “Enigmas” by Pablo Neruda

 “You’ve asked me what the lobster is weaving there with
his golden feet?
I reply, the ocean knows this.”

Day 27 – “The Light Wraps You” by Pablo Neruda

 “The great roots of night
grow suddenly from your soul,
and the things that hide in you come out again “
