"I don't love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as one loves certain dark things,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul."
- Pablo Neruda -
When Neruda's poetry first garnered widespread acclaim, he was still a teenager. Neruda would eventually be recognized as one of Chile's greatest poets. He would also serve his country by occupying a number of diplomatic and political positions.
