Taking his Voice from the Rain

For National Poetry Month, one of our favorite passages:

“I grew up in this town, my poetry was born between the hill and the river, it took its voice from the rain, and like the timber, it steeped itself in the forest.” — Pablo Neruda, from an interview.

You might say that the Land Library has gone overboard for Pablo Neruda over the years. We have more than a shelf full of Neruda’s work, along with books about his remarkable life:

To Go Singing through the World by Deborah Kogan Ray (from our Waterton Canyon Kids Library), The Poetry of Pablo Neruda, Full Woman, Fleshly Apple, Hot Moon: Selected Poems, Residence on Earth, The Hands of Day, Arte de Pajaros/Art of Birds
