Pablo Neruda - Adonic Angela - Read by Willem Dafoe - Soundtrack for the 1994 film Il Postino - Starring Maria Grazia Cucinotta, Massimo Troisi and Philippe Noiret
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.
