resonated with that dark secret place I keep hidden from view But these poems threw back the curtain and shined with angelic vengeance upon my internal cowardice And this, really, is what I want poems to do let me know I am not alone and that others have felt as despondant and helpless in a very mental and spiritual way as I have I almost didn t finish reading the poems because I felt my heart

able to bear and we are stunned by it because it so serenely disdains to destroy us This is fairly bold, even daunting positioning for a poet and Rilke means to attack the big stuff He is grand like Faust addressing Mephistopheles Or Mi I was trying to understand beauty.How silly of me One elegy after another,I realized you submit to beauty and itsconsequences which hopefully last in you, or so
