Rilke förklarar varför våren dröjer


Sure spring depended on you


Many stars lined up

hoping you’d notice.

A wave rose towoads you

out of the past

or a violin

offered itself

As you past an open window

These were instructions, your mission

But could you perform it?

Weren’t you always distracted

Waiting for something

As if all this was announcing

A lovers arrival

- Rainer Maria Rilke

(översättning David Young)
