Time and Again

TIme and again, however well we know the landscape of love,
and the little church-yard with lamenting names,
and the frightfully silent ravine wherein all the others
end: time and again we go out two togtether,
under the old trees, lie down again and again
between the flowers, face to face with the sky.


Rainer Maria Rilke
1875-1926

translated by J. B. Leishman
