Far from the savage city's delirium

Luminous mind, bright devil

of absolute clusterings, of upright noon---:

here we are at last, alone, without loneliness,

far from the savage city's delirium.

 

Just as a pure line describes the dove's curve,

as the fire honors and nourishes peace,

so you and I made this heavenly outcome.

The mind and love live naked in this house.

 

Furious dreams, rivers of bitter certainty,

decisions harder than the dreams of a hammer

flowed into the lovers' double cup,

 

until those twins were lifted into balance

on the scale: the mind and love, like two wings.

---So this transparency was built.

 

Pablo Neruda
