A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on rilke a walk

A Walk

 My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has inner light, even from a distance-

and charges us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it, we already are;
a gesture waves us on answering our own wave...
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)
