The RetroLounge Daily Poem Thread (Fri 3/10/06)
Lament

Whom will you cry to, heart? More and more lonely,
your path struggles on through incomprehensible
mankind. All the more futile perhaps
for keeping to its direction,
keeping on toward the future,
toward what has been lost.

Once. You lamented? What was it? A fallen berry
of jubilation, unripe.
But now the whole tree of my jubilation
is breaking, in the storm it is breaking, my slow
tree of joy.
Loveliest in my invisible
landscape, you that made me more known
to the invisible angels.

Rainer Maria Rilke

1. How beautiful and how sad
I've heard you lose everything at least once in life. I don't know if that's financial or emotional or both. In my case, I feel I've lived many lifetimes.

Thanks for putting words to the emotion for me.

:hug:

2. Oh my RL . . .
how sad.

But now the whole tree of my jubilation is breaking, :cry: The whole tree! I don't want to think about that!

Sending your way!

Hope all is going well with you and yours.

5. Beautiful, if a little difficult to get.......
Or maybe it's just because I haven't had my coffee yet.......

The second stanza is hard to interpret, for me anyhow......

Still, it is beautiful and sad!

Thank you, my dear RetroLounge....
