    Ode to a StarOde to a Star by Neruda
    Appearing at night
    on the terrace
    of a bitter and very high skyscraper,
    I could touch the nocturnal dome
    and in an act of extraordinary love
    I seized a sky-blue star.

    The night was black
    and I slipped along
    the street
    with the stolen star in my pocket.
    Of tremulous crystal
    it seemed,
    and suddenly
    it was
    as if I was carrying
    a package of ice,
    or an archangel’s sword at my belt.

    Fearful,
    I kept it
    under the bed
    so nobody would discover it,
    but its light
    first pierced through
    the woolen mattress,
    then
    the tiles,
    the roof of my house.

    The most private needs
    became
    uncomfortable
    for me.

    Always with that light
    of astral acetylene
    flashing like it wanted
    to return to the night,
    I couldn’t tend to all
    my duties,
    and so I forgot to pay my bills
    and wound up without bread or provisions.

    Meanwhile, in the street,
    passerby milled around,
    worldly
    vendors
    doubtless attracted
    by the unusual brilliance
    they saw coming from my window.

    Then
    I picked up
    my star again,
    carefully
    wrapped it in my handkerchief,
    and disguised among the crowd
    I could pass unrecognized.

    I went west,
    to the Green River,
    for there under the willows
    it was calm.

    I took the star of the cold night
    and gently
    cast it unto the waters.

    And I wasn’t surprised
    that it floated away
    like an insoluble fish
    moving
    in the night of the river
    its diamond body.
