“Podrán cortar todas las flores, pero no podrán detener la primavera.”
“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.”
Starting next month I’ll be focusing on my Spanish language studies to get up to a B level fluency mastery. I’ve adored what I’ve read so far from the works of Mr. Pablo Neruda and reading his poetry will be a part of my language learning. I’m so excited to learn more of his way of thinking and see the world through the eyes of another language. Currently, I have The Poetry of Pablo Neruda on hold at my local library. It has the original text as well as English translations. I’m eager for the challenge as his works are known to be difficult to translate and can be hard to get around even for native speakers. I like the idea of learning expression outside of the basic “Me gusta mucho esto.” I’m so very excited for Spring now.
