You are going to ask: and where are the lilacs?
and the poppy-petalled metaphysics?
and the rain repeatedly spattering
its words and drilling them full
of apertures and birds?
I'll tell you all the news.
-Pablo Neruda, "I'm Explaining a Few Things"

Writer. Fan. Closet romantic.

And you'll ask: why doesn't his poetry
speak of dreams and leaves
and the great volcanoes of his native land?
