You are not dead yet. It is not too late
To open your depths by plunging into them
And drink in the life
That reveals itself quietly there.

-Rilke

River,

Nice. I don't think we have ever had a poem cited from Rainer Rilke, but I really like his verse. It has always impressed me that sometimes he wrote in French instead of German, just to reach an audience in a French-speaking canton of Switzerland where he felt comfortable and at home.

Much love,
Larry

and just think, his words are reaching English speaking folks like us... far beyond what he would have ever imagined.

River,

Well, Rilke was big on the idea of the timelessness of the message of poetry, so I bet he would have liked the idea that this included his verse too. \:\)

Much love,
Larry
