Pablo Neruda Quote

Pablo Neruda

"We came by night to the Fortunate Isles, And lay like fish Under the net of our kisses." Pablo Neruda
"Drunk as Drunk" ("Ebrio de Trementina"), (1932) Neruda wrote this around 1932, but is sometimes mistakenly attributed to his anthology "Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair" (Veinte poemas de amor y una canciĆ³n desesperada), but was actually written in "Residence on Earth" (Residencia en la tierra). His "Residence" anthology in which this is contained, is noted for both it's newer "anti-lyrical style" but also continued with the heady, erotic imagery of his earlier work, as noted earlier in the poem, "Drunk as drunk on turpentine From your open kisses, Your wet body wedged Between my wet body and the strake."
