CORRECTION-Your site has listed the author of this poem as Pablo Neruda. In actualilty, it is another Nobel laureatte, Rabindranath Takhur (Tagore) , the first Prize winner of India, who is the author. Neruda interpreted Tagore's poem into Spanish from Tagore's poetry book, 'The Gardner, ' or as Neruda translated it, 'El Jardino.' Please make the necessary corrections. As a point of reference, you can look at the Penguin publication of Neruda's 'Twenty Love Poems and A Song of Despair.' I believe the poem is numbered in the teens,16 perhaps.
