"The Queen" by Pablo Neruda


The Queen


I have named you queen

There are taller ones than you, taller.
There are purer ones than you, purer.
There are lovelier ones than you,
lovelier.

But you are the queen.

When you go through the streets
no one recognizes you.
No one sees your crystal crown, no
one looks
at the carpet of red gold
that you tread as you pass,
the nonexistent carpet

And when you appear
all the river sound
in my body, bells
shake the sky,
and a hymn fills the world.

Only you and I,
only you and I, my love,
listen to it.

Pablo Neruda
