a walk in the park with Rilke

There is total silence. Upright in overgrown
paths stands the scent of bygone colour.
The sky holds back a long hard rain
The leaves climb stairways through the air.
                                                          Rainer Maria Rilke

from The Inner Sky poems, notes dreams by Rainer Maria Rilke translated by Damion Searls
Godine NY 2010

Oh Felicity, how I do so love the words of Rilke. Sigh.

Rilke is The Best. As is Neruda, and Donne...
