Heart Wide Open

"Then love knew it was called love.

And when I lifted my eyes to your name,

Pablo Neruda, Veinte poemas de amor y una canción desesperada

 

Pablo Neruda was the pen name and, later, legal name of the Chilean poet, diplomat and politician Neftalí Ricardo Reyes Basoalto. He chose his pen name after Czech poet Jan Neruda. In 1971 Neruda won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Neruda always wrote in green ink as it was his personal color of hope.
