A Dose of Neruda

Laugh at the night,
at the day, at the moon,
laugh at the twisted streets of the island,
laugh at this clumsy boy who loves you,
but when I open my eyes and close them,
when my steps go,
when my steps return,
deny me bread, air, light, spring,
but never your laughter for I would die.
-- an excerpt from "Your Laughter" by Pablo Neruda
