Re: Rereading

J0395971Again I find myself in the rereading mode.  I often am more enthusiastic about reading books that are new to me.  Discovery mode. This week I seem to be happily revisiting friends from the past.  Tonight it’s Rilke’s Book of Hours, translated.

You create yourself in ever-changing shapes

that rose from the stuff of our days–

unsung, unmourned, undescribed,

like a forest we never knew.
