Hail To The Spirit
"hail to the spirit that can unite us
for we really live only in figures
and the clocks
with little steps
totter along side our actual days
without ever knowing our true place
we connect ourselves to what's genuine
antennae grope towards antennae
carried by the empty distance.
pure tension. o, music of forces!
could our venial doings deflect what might otherwise disturb you?
the farmer can labour and fuss
but down in the ground, beyond his reach, where
the seed is changing to summer
the earth pours out"
Rainer Maria Rilke
