Hello...
I was wondering if anyone could help me with the author of this poem.


"I love you without knowine how, or when, or from where. I love you straight-forwardly without complexity or surprise (<---not sure if that part is right) I love you because I know no other way than this. So close that your hand on my chest is my hand. So close that when you close your eyes I fall asleep."

I would appreciate any help...thanks!

Caley

Sonnet 17 by Pablo Neruda



I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,

or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.

I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,

in secret, between the shadow and the soul.



I love you as the plant that never blooms

but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;

thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,

risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.



I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.

I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;

so I love you because I know no other way



than this: where I does not exist, nor you,

so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,

so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
