Lament, Rainer Maria Rilke
 
Everything is far
and long gone by.
 
I think that the star
glittering above me
has been dead for a million years.
 
I think there were tears
in the car I heard pass
and something terrible was said.
 
A clock has stopped striking in the house
across the road…
 
When did it start?
 
I would like to step out of my heart
and go walking beneath the enormous sky.
 
I would like to pray.
 
And surely of all the stars that perished
long ago,
one still exists.
 
I think I know
which one it is –
which one, at the end of its beam in the sky,
stands like a white city…
