Pablo Neruda #11: 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 11th counting down to the celebration of ♥...

XII.

You gather things to you like an old road.
You are peopled with echoes and nostalgic voices.
I awoke and at times birds fled and migrated
that had been sleeping in your soul.

Acogedora como un viejo camino.
Te pueblan ecos y voces nostálgicas.
Yo desperté y a veces emigran y huyen
pájaros que dormían en tu alma.
