971. I Live My Life In Widening Circles - Rilke
Translated by Edward Snow
I live my life in widening circles
that drift out over the things.
I may not achieve the very last,
but it will be my aim.
I circle around God, around the age-old tower;
I’ve been circling for millennia
and still I don’t know: am I a falcon, a storm,
or a sovereign song?
