"Rilke in Glory"––poem by Dorothy 

Rilke in Glory

Ah, Rainer Maria Rilke,
dreamer, poet,
lover of angels

Who spoke those words
into your mouth?

Who held you
as you penned
these lines?

Was it the wind
through the curtains
speaking in a language
that only you

Was it the mountain stream
imparting secrets
as it dashed over the rocks
its unfathomed

What honey
fell into your throat
as you silently

Who holds you now
in angelic arms
as you sing your way
through still unmapped
unexplored territories
of the mind?

(Note: This poem was written after reading Rilke's majestic "Buddha in Glory.")
