NAKED ARE YOU SO SIMPLE – Poetry, by Pablo Neruda

nakedareyou.cover.1DESNUDA ERES TAN SIMPLE > Desnuda eres tan simple como una de tus manos, lisa, terrestre, mínima, redonda, transparente, tienes líneas de luna, caminos de manzana, desnuda eres delgada como el trigo desnudo. Desnuda eres azul como la noche en Cuba, tienes enredaderas y estrellas en el pelo, desnuda eres enorme y amarilla como el verano en una iglesia de oro. Desnuda eres pequeña como una de tus uñas, curva, sutil, rosada hasta que nace el día y te metes en el subterráneo del mundo, como en un largo túnel de trajes y trabajos: tu claridad se apaga, se viste, se deshoja y otra vez vuelve a ser una mano desnuda.

nakedareyou.cover.1NAKED ARE YOU SO SIMPLE > Naked you are simple as one of your hands, smooth, earthy, small, round, transparent, you have lines moon, apple pathways Naked you are slender as a naked grain of wheat. Naked you are blue like the night in Cuba, you have vines and stars in your hair, naked spacious and yellow as summer in a golden church. Naked little like one of your nails, curved, subtle, rosy, till the day is born and you get into the underground world, and in a long tunnel of clothing and work are: your clear light dims, gets dressed, loses its leaves and other once again a bare hand.

(Pablo Neruda)
