Tonight I Can Write

Of late, I have been thrilled to find clips of great poems recited and posted on youtube. There is a certain element of charm that goes along with poetic recitations - especially by the poet him/herself. The exactness is as a musical composer conducting the orchestra of his own symphony.

This next poem recommended by a good friend, Tonight I Can Write, was written by the great Chilean Nobel prize winner in Literature (1971), Pablo Neruda. It was featured in the celebrated film, Il Postino, and here, it is passionately recited by Andy Garcia.

Indeed moving...
