As you once found me


As you once found me,
I was small, so small
yet blooms appeared
Just be quiet within yourself.
I was a nameless and small
and longed  so deeply
until you said that I am too big
for any name:
For, it seems,  I am one
with myth, with May, and with the sea,
and like the living fragrance of the wine
that strengthens the soul ...

Rainer Maria Rilke 
from The Early Poems
