Tonight I can write the saddest lines – Pablo Neruda [Recitation]


Tonight I can write the saddest lines Write for example, “The night is shattered,
and the blue stars shiver in the distance” The night wind revolves in the sky and sings Tonight I can write the saddest lines. I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too. Through nights like this one I held her in
my arms. I kissed her again and again under the endless
sky. She loved me sometimes and I loved her too. How could one not have loved her great still
eyes. Tonight I can write the saddest lines. To think that I do not have her , to feel
that I have lost her. To hear the immense night, still more immense
without her. And the verse falls to the soul like dew to
the pasture What does it matter that my love could not
keep her The night is shattered and she is not with
me. This is all. In the distance someone is singing.
In the distance… My soul is not satisfied that it has lost
her. My sight searches for her as though to go
to her. My heart looks for her and she is not with
me. The same night, whitening the same trees. We, of that time, are no longer the same. I no longer love her, that’s certain, but
how I loved her. My voice tries to find the wind to touch her
hearing. Another’s, she will be another’s. Like my
kisses before. Her void, her bright body, her infinite eyes. I no longer love her, that’s certain. But
may be I love her. Love is so short, forgetting is so long. Because through night like this one, I held
her in my arms. My soul is not satisfied that it has lost
her. Though this be the last pain that she makes
me suffer. And this the last verses that I write for
her.
