A Walk Analysis



Author: poem of Rainer Maria Rilke Type: poem Views: 1

My eyes already touch the sunny hill.

going far ahead of the road I have begun.

So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;

it has inner light, even from a distance-



and charges us, even if we do not reach it,

into something else, which, hardly sensing it,

we already are; a gesture waves us on

answering our own wave...

but what we feel is the wind in our faces.

.: :.

I believe there is an error in the above text, one that continues to be circulated throughout the internet repostings of this poem. In line one of the second stanza, the word \"charges\" should be \"changes.\" Then the meaning of the poem becomes more clear.
There is also another translation of this poem by Cliff Crego.
Already my gaze is upon the hill, the sunny one,
at the end of the path which I\'ve only just begun.
So we are grasped, by that which we could not grasp,
at such great distance, so fully manifest--
and it changes us, even when we do not reach it,
into something that, hardly sensing it, we already are;
a sign appears, echoing our own sign...
But what we sense is the falling winds.
Rainer Maria Rilke (tr.Cliff Crego)
(Muzot, the Alps, March, 1924)
