Rilke’s 25th (dub)

end, Heatherwell, what I have to offer today is this dub of Rilke’s 25th Sonnet to Orpheus:

25

Again I remember you

Who I loved like a flower

With an unknown name

Yet I’ll show you to them

My lovely playmate of the city

Taken so early from this world

A dancer at first then

Your supple body hesitated

As if your youth were cast

In bronze; sorrowful, listening

For the music from eternity

Which sank into your blood

Sickness drew near and

The darkened blood, altered

Already mastered by shadows

Could not wait but surged

Toward its natural end

Again and again it glittered

Earthy, interrupted by dark disaster

Until after the terrible pounding

You entered that desolate open door
