Quotes about Octavio paz
Beautiful girl (a reply to Octavio Paz)
Beautiful girl staring out of the page
of a magazine, your perfect body
is cast in lovely rounded lines
with a ravishing smile that catches the eye
of most men, how easily did you cast
your web over me, before I turned the page.

and have stroked your blonde hair
and at times read the sadness
hidden behind your charm
and know how you battled life
to find a way to care
when intelligence and education
couldn’t pay for raising
the two children that you love.

and the lines beneath your dress
draws attention to your sheer beauty
and I write this poem to you
whose intelligence and character
I know from the times
that we have met
and I know that there is much more
to you, than photo perfect looks.
Far too many men view you
as just one more shallow head

mao kana ang Groto sa Puti nga Tigre
nga mao usab ang Tumoy sa Dinorado nga Ligbos.
gusto niya nga adtoon ang imong tulo
ka langub sa kalipay,
diha sa imong baba, diha sa imong totoy, diha
sa balayan sa imong kinhason.
andig andig sa andes andes
nga sa dihang nabyudo na si Papa
og naghandom kang Mama
miingon siya nga kadtong kinhasona
maingon ingon gayod

'The mission of poetry is to create among people
the possibility of wonder, admiration, mystery,
the sense that life is marvelous...
To make life a marvel-that is the role of poetry.'
- OCTAVIO PAZ
she finally admits that she likes octavio
but she does not understand him, and i quip
that if that is the case, you must stop reading him, he is killing you
and your initial desire to be in love with poetry
isn't it that the mission of poetry is to create this marvel?
this admiration? this feeling that life is marvelous?
that there is still this wonderful feeling left inside us
despite the odds?
