More from Pablo Neruda

The darkness of a day elapsed,
of a day nourished with our sad blood.

There Is No Forgetting: Sonata, Residencia en la Tierra (1925-1935) (1935)

Memoirs, ch. 11

but now he’s gone with his shaggy coat,
his bad manners and his cold nose

all his sweet and shaggy life,
always near me, never troubling me,
and asking nothing.

A Dog Has Died

Joyful, joyful, joyful,
as only dogs know how to be happy
with only the autonomy
of their shameless spirit.
