I Live My Life in Spreading Rings, by Rainer Maria Rilke

I Live My Life in Spreading Rings

I live my life in spreading rings
that encompass all things.
I might never reach the last one,
but I will try.   I circle around God, around the ancient tower,
as I have circled for a thousand years;
and I still don’ t know if I am a falcon, a storm,
or an endless song.
