University town graffiti, or found haiku

I want to do with you
what springtime
does with cherry trees
          P. Neruda

These are the closing lines to Poem 14 in Pablo Neruda's 1924 book, Twenty Poems of Love and a Desperate Song.

The photo is of graffiti in Salamanca, Spain, with the New Cathedral in the background. I took it in August 2008.
