is the rose naked

from The Book of Questions III.

 

Tell me, is the rose naked

or is that her only dress?

 

Why do trees conceal

the splendor of their roots?

 

Who hears the regrets

of the thieving automobile?

 

Is there anything in the world sadder

than a train standing in the rain?

 

~Pablo Neruda
