Poetry Friday

Who doesn't love Alan Rickman? One of my favorite films is his Truly, Madly, Deeply; and in it, he recites Pablo Neruda's Dead Woman (La Muerta), here translated by Donald D. Walsh.

If suddenly you do not exist,
if suddenly you are not living,
I shall go on living.

I do not dare,
I do not dare to write it,
if you die.

I shall go on living.
The rest of the poem is here.

How tacky is it to toot one's own horn? Well, I'll risk it:
has my first foray into Poetry Friday. May I join the club?
