Water kisses and always


Unbridled Eve, oil on canvas, by Lauri Blank


Something beautiful for your Wednesday: Pablo Neruda and Lauri Blank
  
Happy Wednesday!

PS I have a dress just like the one in that painting!


Always
By Pablo Neruda

Translated by Brian Cole


I am not jealous
of what came before me.

Come with a man
on your shoulders,
come with a hundred men in your hair,
come with a thousand men between your breasts and your feet,
come like a river
full of drowned men
which flows down to the wild sea,
to the eternal surf, to Time!

Bring them all
to where I am waiting for you;
we shall always be alone,
we shall always be you and I
alone on earth,
to start our life!
