Neruda’s “Ode and Germinations”

by V. L. Craven

“We have traveled over each other lip to lip,
we have exchanged a thousand times
between us death and life,
all that we brought with us
like dead medals
we throw into the depths of the sea,
all that we learned
was of no use to us:
we begin all over again,
we end all over again
death and life.”

Pablo Neruda
