Whether he is away from Chile or back in his native land, he wants the defiant laughter of the Chileans to reach his ears. This is why he is able to look back at his life and examine all the struggles he has been through.
However, since we can only access his poems in translation, and because free verse has automatically been adopted by his various translators, individual translations do not merit too much comment on rhyme scheme.
Simpson has found the way to lift the spirits with real laughter. However, the defiant laughter of his fellow Chileans had kept him alive. As a Communist, he had had to escape from his motherland and live in exile for several years.
Simpson, the well-known Scottish author, has come up with his best book yet, an inspiring collection of stories and anecdotes that sometimes exercise the chuckle muscles, often offer illumination, and always lift the spirits. During his time there he not only served as captain of the Royal Dornoch Golf Club, but wrote many books, some of which, like Holy Wit and Life, Love and Laughter, topped Scottish bestseller charts.
Poetic Scheme and Rhetorical Devices: Even after his death, he wants his countrymen to keep up their spirit of cheerful resistance.

Simpson was minister of Dornoch Cathedral in the Scottish Highlands. He is also much in demand as an after-dinner speaker. Through all this, he had endured simply because of love. When he imagines his beloved laughing at him, he is hinting at the fact that his Communist beliefs may be naive, but that a Latin American nation like Chile that had itself seen many revolutions would only laugh good-naturedly at him, but not in derision.
But it is for that very reason that a leavening of humour does no harm at all. Dr Simpson has long believed that in any lecture, discussion or debate a little comic relief does no harm, no matter how serious the topic may be.
It was not necessarily the love of one woman that had kept up his strength, but the love of an ideal woman who he addresses this poem too. He wanted to hear this laughter echoed in every nook and corner of his beloved Chile.
Perhaps the laughter of which Neruda speaks is the laughter of the citizens of Chile in their defiance. The use of free verse is conducive to the lyrical quality of his love poems.
