You see, I want a lot.
Perhaps I want everything
the darkness that comes with every infinite fall
and the shivering blaze of every step up.
— Rainer Maria Rilke – from “[You see, I want a lot],” Rilke’s Book of Hours: Love Poems to God. Translated by Anita Barrows & Joanna Macy. (Riverhead Books; Eighth Printing edition April 1, 1997) Originally published 1905.
