Tell me, is the rose nakedby Pablo Neruda
English version by William O'Daly
Original Language Spanish
Tell me, is the rose naked
or is that her only dress?
Why do trees conceal
the splendor of their roots?
Who hears the regrets
of the thieving automobile?
Is there anything in the world sadder
than a train standing in the rain?
|-- from The Book of Questions, by Pablo Neruda / Translated by William O'Daly|
