Don't Go Far Off
Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don't leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
Don't leave me for a second, my dearest,

because in that moment you'll have gone so far
I'll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?


Pablo Neruda
T: Title
Think about the title before reading the poem and make some predictions.
C: Connotation
Try to think about the meaning beyond the actual definition. Try to pick out the poetic devices or figurative language.

Don't Go Far Off

Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don't leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
Don't leave me for a second, my dearest,

because in that moment you'll have gone so far
I'll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?


Pablo Neruda
I think the title "Don't Go Far Off" might be a mother talking to a child and telling them to stay close to her.
P: Paraphrase
Put the poem into your own words
Original
Paraphrase
Don't Go Far Off
Don't go very far not even for a single day because--
because--How can I say it? A day is a long time and I
will be waiting even though no one is going to be there for me

Don't leave for an hour because I will start to feel worried
Like I can't breathe without you with me

I hope the good memories stay with us and
you never want to leave
Please don't leave me even for a second

If you leave me I will search the earth looking for you
and hoping you'll come back.
Don't Go Far Off

Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don't leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
Don't leave me for a second, my dearest,

because in that moment you'll have gone so far
I'll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?


Pablo Neruda
Simile: Comparing the feeling of loosing someone to an empty station
"Don't" is repeated to emphasize how desperate the speaker feels
Personification
Hyperbole meant to show how in love the speaker is and how they will feel if their love leaves them
A: Attitude
How does the speaker feel about the person of subject of the poem? How do you know?
Don't Go Far Off

Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don't leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
Don't leave me for a second, my dearest,

because in that moment you'll have gone so far
I'll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?


Pablo Neruda
The author feels desperately in love with the person they are talking to and doesn't want them to leave. The speaker describes how awful it would feel if they did leave.
S: Shift
Is there a change in speaker, mood, language or attitude?
Don't Go Far Off

Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don't leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
Don't leave me for a second, my dearest,

because in that moment you'll have gone so far
I'll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?


Pablo Neruda
In this stanza, the mood and attitude change because all of the other stanzas are about getting the person to stay, this stanza shifts to talking about what would happen to the speaker if the person they are addressing doesn't stay.
T: Title (Again)
Look at the title again but this time thinking about it at a bigger level.
What does it mean to you now?
Did the meaning change?
Don't Go Far Off
Now it means that the speaker doesn't want the person they love to leave them,
The meaning of the title did change for me because originally I thought it might be a mother/child relationship and instead it was about a romantic relationship between two people.
T: Theme
What is the bigger idea the author is trying to get across? How do you know?
The theme of the poem refers back to the idea of true love. When you are in a loving relationship, there is a feeling of desperation when it comes to the possibility of that person not returning your feelings.

This makes analyzing poetry easy :)
Complete answer:
While originally I thought the poem was going to reflect a relationship between a mother and child, the title actually refers to a romantic relationship between the speaker and their subject.
