" One touch of nature

makes all the world kin "

Am I a falcon, a storm, or a great song?

Amur_Falcon_femaleA poem from Rilke’s Book of Hours : Love Poem to God by Rainer Maria Rilke, translated by Joanna Macy, Riverhead, 2005

 

 

 

I live my life in widening circles

that reach out across the world.

I may not complete this last one

but I give myself to it.

I circle around God, around the primordial tower.

I’ve been circling for thousands of years

and I still don’t know: am I a falcon,

a storm, or a great song?
