Song Of The Sea

Song Of The Sea

(Capri, Piccola Marina)

Timeless sea breezes,
Sea-wind of the night:
You come for no one;
If someone should wake,
He must be prepared
How to survive you.

Timeless sea breezes,
That for aeons have
Blown ancient rocks,
You are purest space
Coming from afar…

Oh, how a fruit-bearing
Fig tree feels your coming
High up in the moonlight.



Poem Song Of The Sea - Rainer Maria Rilke
