The road that leads away from everything

tonight I just discovered Pablo Neruda, Twenty Love Poems And a Song of Despair : what a great poet !

Poem 11
"Ay seguir el camino que se aleja de todo,
donde no esté atajando la angustia, la muerte, el invierno,
con sus ojos abiertos entre el rocío. "

"Oh to follow the road that leads away from everything,
without anguish, death, winter waiting along it
with their eyes open through the dew."

If you haven't read it, you definitely should: excellent images.
