~Sunday Poem

Albert Edelfelt
Love happened at last,
And we entered God’s paradise,
Under the skin of the water
Like fish.
We saw the precious pearls of the sea
And were amazed.
Love happened at last
Without intimidation…with symmetry of wish.
So I gave…and you gave
And we were fair.
It happened with marvelous ease
Like writing with jasmine water,
Like a spring flowing
from the ground.

by Pablo Neruda

This poem is not by Pablo Neruda.
(remember that Pablo Neruda was an atheist)
This poem is by Nizar Qabbani, a contemporary Arab poet.

If you want do not post my comment, but I suggest checking the poem.
I only know this poem in Spanish:
"El amor vino al fin
y penetramos en el paraíso de Dios,
bajo la piel del agua
como peces....."

It's a very erotic and sensual poem.

Anna you are so sweet!
Indeed, Pablo Neruda is a great Chilean poet. He and Gabriela Mistral are the only Nobel Prize for Literature in my country.

Thanks a lot, a hug!
