    SONNET 116 Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove. Oh no! It is an ever fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken. It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle's compass come. Love alters not with his brief hours...

    1.What Spain Was Like()-Pablo Neruda  Spain was a taut, dry drum-head  Daily beating a dull thud  Flatlands and eagle's nest  Silence lashed by the storm.  How much, to the point of weeping, in my soul  I love your hard soil, your poor bread,  Your poor people, how much in the deep place  Of my being there is still the lost flower  Of your wrinkled villages, motionless in time  And your metallic meadows  Stretched out in the moonlight through the ages,  Now devoured by a false god.  ...
