'Wednesday Warmers' - Pablo Neruda's celestial socks ...
Oct 28, 2020 Season 2 Episode 11
rowena scotney

An episode of just over 5 mins, and the first in the Wednesday Warmers series inspired by reading Pablo Neruda's poem today 'Ode to My Socks'.

A beautiful poem celebrating the gift of a pair of hand-knitted socks.

There's extra poignancy in the warmth, love, comfort and kindness shown with the gift, and in the joy in receiving too, when considering Neruda's history of exile and writing in many turbulent times... and it's also so gently humorous too x

  • A little bit at the beginning and then the poem begins at 2 mins 45 secs


  • 'Ode to My Socks' by Pablo Neruda (translated from the Spanish by Margaret Sayers Peden)
