My free translation of Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem:

 

My life is not this steep hour, 
where you see me hurry.
I am a tree in front of my background.
I am just one of my many mouths, 
and the one that closes most early.
I am the silence between two tones,
which do not ease into each other lightly:
as the sound “death” likes to rise.

But in the dark interval they reconcile, quivering.
And the song stays beautiful.

Rainer Maria Rilke, Book of Hours
