Robert Bly performs a beautiful Rainer Maria Rilke poem. Bly says the poem is about increasingly expanding our “orbits,” the amount of the world we can embrace. I hope this poetry reading is as touching for you as it is for me.
“I am circling around God, around the ancient tower, and I have been circling for a thousand years, and I still don’t know if I am a falcon, or a storm, or a great song.
I still don’t know if I am a falcon, or a storm, or a great song. ”
