I Live My Life In Widening Circles By Rainer Maria Rilke

I live my life in widening circles,
that reach out across the world.
I may not ever complete the last one,
but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, that primordial tower.
I have been circling for thousands of years,
and I shall not know, wondering, am I falcon,
a storm, or a great song?

Translated By Anita Barrows,
and Joanna Macy
