I am Bound to My Vague Memory of You
Photograph - Photograph
Because of you, in gardens of blossoming
Flowers I ache from the perfumes of spring.
I have forgotten your face, I no longer
Remember your hands; how did your lips
Feel on mine?
Because of you, I love the white statues
Drowsing in the parks, the white statues that
Have neither voice nor sight.
I have forgotten your voice, your happy voice;
I have forgotten your eyes.
Like a flower to its perfume, I am bound to
My vague memory of you. I live with pain
That is like a wound; if you touch me, you will
Make to me an irreperable harm.
Your caresses enfold me, like climbing
Vines on melancholy walls.
I have forgotten your love, yet I seem to
Glimpse you in every window.
Because of you, the heady perfumes of
Summer pain me; because of you, I again
Seek out the signs that precipitate desires:
Shooting stars, falling objects.
Love by Pablo Neruda
Throughout our house, one can find any number of art books showing the works of great painters, great novels, books on philosophical questions and books of poetry. The books generally have places on shelves and are removed from and replaced again whenever they are used. But, the books of poems are everywhere. One can find a book of poetry in the kitchen; in the bathroom; on a table by the bed; over there too! For a long time 100 Love Sonnets or Cien sonetos de amor by Pablo Neruda (in English and Spanish) had a permanent place on a table by the sofa. One day a small person, in age and stature, used it for a coloring book. Some of the pages were destroyed. I never got around to replacing it. If anyone ever feels the need to make a gift to me, this would be a great choice. I loved that book. I gave it to the parent of the child because how appropriate is it for a mother to have a book of love poems that is indelibly marked by one of her greatest objects of affection?
