For Hans Carossa

Losing too is still ours; and even forgetting
Still has a shape in the kindgdom of transformation.
When something’s let go of, it circles; and though we are
rarely the center
Of the circle, it draws around us its unbroken, marvelous
curve.



Poem For Hans Carossa - Rainer Maria Rilke
