Again And Again, However We Know The Landscape Of Love - Poem by Rainer Maria Rilke

Again and again, however we know the landscape of love
and the little churchyard there, with its sorrowing names,
and the frighteningly silent abyss into which the others
fall: again and again the two of us walk out together
under the ancient trees, lie down again and again
among the flowers, face to face with the sky.

    .......this is true love....being with the one you love the most....and just laying in a field of wildflowers... enjoying the view of the heavens...how much blissful could life be... (Report) Reply
