VARIATION AND REFLECTION ON A THEME BY RILKE
web | The Sun Is but a Morning Star
A certain day became a presence to me;
there it was, confronting me a sky, air, light:
a being. And before it started to descend
from the height of noon, it leaned over
and struck my shoulder as if with
the flat of a sword, granting me
honor and a task. The day's blow
rang out, metallic or it was I, a bell awakened,
and what I heard was my whole self
saying and singing what it knew: I can.
