Rainer Maria Rilke / Auguste Rodin | Love Song, 1907

Auguste Rodin🎨 - Fugit Amor, 1881

How shall I hold my soul and yet not touch
It with your own? How shall I ever place
It clear of you on anything beyond?
Oh gladly I would stow it next to such
Things in the darkness as are never found
Down in an alien and silent space
That does not resonate when you resound.
