Symbols (Poem by Rainer Maria Rilke)

the Old Poems

Symbols
By Rainer Maria Rilke


From infinite longings finite deeds rise
As fountains spring toward far-off glowing skies,
But rushing swiftly upward weakly bend
And trembling from their lack of power descend —
So through the falling torrent of our fears
Our joyous force leaps like these dancing tears.
