Good Night

And now, dear friends, a sweet good night, and thoughts of Rilke to hold us tight.

And once more from our dear friend, Donna May. May we all dream on with thoughts of snow and angel wings. And may we plumb the depths of our own souls, our own center which cannot hold.

“Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.”

~ Rainer Maria Rilke; (1875–1896) Bohemian-Austrian poet

 

It’s a surprise and it’s so very pleasing. Rilke does that by changing from the expected (a child who begins to grow) to the art that is represented— the poem.
