Happy Birthday Pablo Neruda!

Today is Pablo Neruda's birthday, and in celebration, I would like to share one of my favorite Neruda poem, "Sonnet LXXXI." Neruda wrote a huge collection on sonnets, often exploring love and traveling. I love how this poem opens up on the line "And now..." because it applies that the reader is entering this monologue half-way through. The image of eternal amber is also wonderful.
