Created to honor Rainer Maria Rilke’s birthday. (December 4th, 1875)
Here is the full text of the poem;
I love the dark hours of my being.
My mind deepens into them.
There I can find, as in old letters,
the days of my
and held like a legend, and understood.
Then the knowing comes:
I can open
to another life that’s wide and timeless.
So I am sometimes like a tree
rustling over a grave site
and making real the dream
of the one its living roots
a dream once lost
among sorrows and songs.
