I live my life in widening circles

that reach out across the world.

I may not ever complete the last one,

but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, that primordial tower.

I have been circling for thousands of years,

and I still don’t know: am I a falcon,

a storm, or a great song?
Rainer Maria Rilke
