Neruda 's Poetry Sonnet LXXXI And now your mine - Julia Roberts

This is the last of my April is Poetry Month  posts. If you have not read the previous posts to celebrate poetry month and previous blogs relating Pablo Neruda's great poetry go here to catch up.. I think I could probably feature a exceptional poem by this great poet every week for a good long time. And I just might.  (just kidding, not every week, but maybe once in a while wouldn't hurt.

Today I want to share with you Sonnet LXXXI written by Pablo Neruda, featured in a You Tube narrated by Julia Roberts & Andy Garcia.

And now you're mine. Rest with your dream in my dream.
Love and pain and work should all sleep, now.
The night turns on its invisible wheels,
and you are pure beside me as a sleeping amber.

No one else, Love, will sleep in my dreams. You will go,
we will go together, over the waters of time.
No one else will travel through the shadows with me,
only you, evergreen, ever sun, ever moon.

Your hands have already opened their delicate fists
and let their soft drifting signs drop away; your eyes closed like two gray
wings, and I move

after, following the folding water you carry, that carries
me away. The night, the world, the wind spin out their destiny.
Without you, I am your dream, only that, and that is all.
