In Paradise they look no more awry;
and though they make anew, they make no lie.
Be sure they still will make, not being dead,
and poets shall have flames upon their head,
and harps whereon their faultless fingers fall:
there each shall choose for ever from the All.

"perhaps the same
bird echoed through both of us
yesterday, separate, in the evening …"



- Rainer Maria Rilke, from “[You who never arrived]”, trans. Stephen Mitchell (via)
