    Adonic Angela
    by Pablo Neruda (1904-1973)

    Today I stretched out next to a pure young woman
    as if at the shore of a white ocean,
    as if at the center of a burning star
    of slow space.

    From her lengthily green gaze
    the light fell like dry water,
    in transparant and deep circles
    of fresh force.

    Her bosom like a two flamed fire
    burned raised in two regions,
    and in a double river reached
    her large, clear feet.

    A climate of gold scarcely ripened
    the diurnal length of her body
    filling it with extended fruits
    and hidden fire.
