you, darkness,
of whom I am born –
I love you more
than the flame that limits the world
to the circle it illuminates
and excludes all the rest.
but the darkness embraces
everything – shapes and shadows,
creatures and me –
people, nations, just as they are.
It lets me imagine
a great presence stirring beside me.
I believe in the night.
Rainer Maria Rilke
