Quick Rilke Break

I forgot how much I enjoy Rainer Maria Rilke’s poems until I came across this one yesterday and immediately set about memorizing it.


Understand, I’ll slip quietly
away from the nosy crowd
when I see the pale
stars rising, blooming, over the oaks.

I’ll pursue solitary pathways
Through the pale twilit meadows,
with only this one dream:
You come too.
