Pablo Neruda #2: 20 Love Poems

Every day for the next 20 days leading to Valentine's Day, I will be sharing bits of Pablo Neruda's TWENTY LOVE POEMS (VEINTE POEMAS DE AMOR).

Here's the 2nd counting down to the celebration of ♥...

V. SO THAT YOU WILL HEAR ME

But my words become stained with your love.
You occupy everything, you occupy everything.


I am making them into an endless neckless
for your white hands, smooth as grapes.

Pero se van tiñendo con tu amor mis palabras.
Todo lo ocupas tú, todo lo ocupas.


Voy haciendo de todas un collar infinito
para tus blancas manos, suaves como las uvas.
