I Live My Life in Spreading Rings
Rainer Maria Rilke
translated by James Burnham (1948- )
I live my life in spreading rings
that encompass all things.
I might never reach the last one,
but I will try.
I circle around God, around the ancient tower,
as I have circled for a thousand years;
and I still don’t know if I am a falcon, a storm,
or an endless song.
poems by Rainer Maria Rilke
