12 “do you know”

20170728_000006

Do you know, I would quietly 

slip from the loud circle,

when first I know the pale

stars above the oaks

are blooming

 

Ways I will elect

that seldom any tread

in pale evening meadows–

and no dream but this:

You come too.

Rainer Maria Rilke, from the First Poems

translated by M.D. Herter Norton
