Pablo Neruda

At night I dream that you and I are two plants
that grew together, roots entwined,
and that you know the earth and the rain like my mouth,
since we are made of earth and rain.

— Pablo Neruda, from “Rain (Rapa Nui),” Regalo De Un Poeta/Gift Of A Poet. Translated by Anthony Kerrigan. (VERGARA & RIBA September 25, 2009) Originally published 1999.
