The poem in Happiness for Novices
XVII (I don’t love you)…
I don’t love you as in case you have been salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the hearth shoots off.
I like you as sure darkish issues are to be liked,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I like you because the plant that by no means blooms
however carries in itself the sunshine of hidden flowers;
due to your love a sure strong perfume,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my physique.
I like you with out figuring out how, or when, or from the place.
I like you straightforwardly, with out complexities or pleasure;
so I like you as a result of I do know no different approach
than this: the place I doesn’t exist, nor you,
so shut that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so shut that your eyes shut as I go to sleep.
by Pablo Neruda
