R.M. Rilke…

This was the German poet, I was trying to remember, but confused with Goethe.

My second ex-wife, Gail, studied Rilke at Reed College in the U.S.   Ironically, I got to know her German professor Herr Locher, who would take sabatical from time to time.  He had a house in Italy, north of Genoa, on the coast.  I found it one day, way up in the hillls, on the old ancient Roman road to France.  I remember eating in the village restaurant, so good!  Itally, Rissoto and Tirimasu, ahhhhhhhhhhh!  Vundabar!


What will you do, God, when I die?

When I, your pitcher, broken, lie?

When I, your drink, go stale and dry?

I am your garb, the trade you ply,

Do you lose yourself, when I die?

This, from Rilke interesting…

He understands human existence, as we are how God experiences Materialism.

We live in a dual reality, material form, sensed by our five.

The trick, GET BEYOND, while still in body!
