I live my life in widening circlesby Rainer Maria Rilke
English version by Anita Barrows and Joanna Macy
Original Language German
I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not ever complete the last one,
but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, that primordial tower.
I have been circling for thousands of years,
and I still don't know: am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?
