your eyes are too big for your face,
your eyes are too big for the earth.
There are countries, there are rivers,
in your eyes,
my country is your eyes,
I walk through them,
they light the world
through which I walk,
— Pablo Neruda, from “Lovely One,” The Captain’s Verses: Love Poems. (New Directions Publishing Corporation; Bilingual edition July 2004) Originally published 1952.
