A Quote by Pablo Neruda on questions, destiny, and chile

Whom can I ask what I came
to make happen in this world?

Why do I move without wanting to,
why am I not able to sit still?

Why do I go rolling without wheels,
flying without wings or feathers,

and why did I decide to migrate
if my bones live in Chile?

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on heaven, afterlife, dogs, materialism, atheism, and pets

And I, a materialist who does not believe
in the starry heaven promised
to a human being,
for this dog and for every dog
I believe in heaven, yes, I believe in a heaven
that I will never enter, but he waits for me
wagging his big fan of a tail
so I, soon to arrive, will feel welcomed.

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on dogs

in

No, my dog used to watch me
giving me the attention I need,
yet only the attention necessary
to let a vain person know
that he being a dog,
with those eyes, more pure than mine,
was wasting time, but he watched
with a look that reserved for me
every bit of sweetness...

O merry, merry, merry,
like only dogs know how to be happy
and nothing more, with an absolute
shameless nature.

I stood on the balcony dark with mourning...
hoping the earth would spread its wings
in my uninhabited love.

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on silence, winter, visitation, rain, bells, death, seeds, sprouting, germination, the visitor, and seasons

Once more I am the silent one
who came out of the distance
wrapped in cold rain and bells:
I owe to earth's pure death
the will to sprout.

I am a book of snow,
a spacious hand, an open meadow,
a circle that waits,
I belong to the earth and its winter.
