We extended our “Ode to Love” to film. Scott Simpson took som e amazing footage of Kristina B (Fenton Moon), and her effervescence just bounces off the screen; she has a mesmerizing quality, that it’s so easy to see why she was ideal for the Vigoss LOVE LOVE Spring/Summer 2012 campaign. Pablo Neruda’s Sonnet LXVI was recited to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suite No.5 II Allamande. Enjoy!
Sonnet LXVI by Pablo Neruda
I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire.
I love you only because it’s you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.
Maybe January light will consume
My heart with its cruel
Ray, stealing my key to true calm.
In this part of the story I am the one who
Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,
Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.
