From Pablo Neruda’s “Oda a la primavera”:

kisses from the lips of carnations,

roses in scarlet tides . . . .

your elfin hands and the hands

of the people make magic,

when on this earth

fire and love

caress your leaping

pearly feet,


you, spring,

come into

the houses

of all mankind.

It will be no sin to love you,

deranged dahlia,

crazy acacia—

my beloved,

to stand by your side, your scent

and your abundance, without regret to love . . . .
