"Herr, es ist Zeit."

That's all I remember from the opening lines of this poem, which I read as a junior in college with my German professor during an independent study. It was good then, is good now. Thanks for the reminder!

Glorious bro . . . beautiful in dialogue with your picture too!

Heidegger thought Rilke was the best example of a poet unconcealing the reality of the world.

Beautiful, just beautiful.



Thanks for sharing that one, Josh. The last stanza makes me curious if he was writing about anyone in particular. Reading Letters to a Young Poet recently was that good...and more.

That's a lovely translation of Rilke's poem. Thanks for the effort.
