Loneliness Analysis



Author: poem of Rainer Maria Rilke Type: poem Views: 10

Sponsored Links



Being apart and lonely is like rain.

It climbs toward evening from the ocean plains;

from flat places, rolling and remote, it climbs

to heaven, which is its old abode.

And only when leaving heaven drops upon the city.



It rains down on us in those twittering

hours when the streets turn their faces to the dawn,

and when two bodies who have found nothing,

dissapointed and depressed, roll over;

and when two people who despise eachother

have to sleep together in one bed-



that is when loneliness receives the rivers...

.: :.

Does the reference at the end of the first line in the second stanza indicate that Rilke anticipated early 21st century technology (and possibly the relationship to loneliness)?
