Poetry Friday: Sonnet XVII by Pablo Neruda

poetry-friday-logo

Greetings, lovelies!

I’ve been thinking of doing something weekly and an idea just came to me. Whenever I feel sad, tired, or just want some peace of mind, I read poetry.

So every Friday, I’m going to share to you one of my favorite poems. It doesn’t have to be as complicated as Shakespeare’s. Poetry from a Tumblr account can be just as good.

“Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.”
– Rita Dove

Now, here’s the first one.
