Pablo Neruda #14: 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 14th counting down to the celebration of ♥...

XVIII.

Oh the black cross of a ship.
Alone.
Sometimes I get up early and even my soul is wet.
Far away the sea sounds and resounds.
This is a port.
Here I love you.


O la cruz negra de un barco.
Solo.
A veces amanezco, y hasta mi alma está húmeda.
Suena, resuena el mar lejano.
Este es un puerto.
Aquí te amo.
