Poem: Evergreens

 

Naked

nature

is

looking

forward

to its

 new

blooming

surrounded

by

the

safety

of

stable

and

serene

evergreen

spruces.

 

Mission

of joy

accomplishes

itself

supported

by our

souls.

Rainer Maria Rilke: Early Spring

Pierre Bonnard: Early Spring (Little Fauns) /wikipaintings.org

Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows’ wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,

hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees.

– Rainer Maria Rilke
