Hark! Pablo Neruda’s “Dazzle of Day.”

April 22, 2012 , , ,

April has been National Poetry Month since 1996 in the U.S.

With one week left of stanzas, sonnets, and iambic pentameters, perhaps the stunning beauty of each day or changing season is enough for the brewing summer. 

May I present Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda (1904-1973), who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1971.  From the hardcover book, Intimacies, Poems of Love, which beckoned its used pages to me from Dog Eared Books in San Francisco’s gritty Mission District.  Likely composed from Isla Negra, Neruda’s house on the Pacfic Coast of Chile… intimismos.
