...where nothing yet exists;
that out there, bewildered for the first time,
inattentive, you didn’t grasp the splendor of the infinite forces,
as on earth you grasped each Thing;
that, from the realm which had already received you,
the gravity of some old discontent had dragged you back to measurable time.
This often startles me out of dreamless sleep at night..."
from "Requiem For a Friend"
Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)
