What a Great Great!!!

It is so great people story, a great people, Pablo Neruda and Gabriela Mistral and my friend Josie’s country, who I met my English class long ago, he was keep telling me “ Young Sun you must recite to me some of great poems with your great broken English!” teased my broken English accent.

So I recite some of his native Mistral’s poem to him like this;

I believe in my heart that when
The wounded heart sunk within the depth of God sings
It rises from the pond alive
As if new-born.

I believe in my heart that what I wring from myself
To tinge life’s canvas
With red of pallid hue, thus cloaking it
In luminous garb.
