A Poem about Spring, by Rainer Maria Rilke

One of my favorite poets, Rainer Maria Rilke, did indeed write a lot about spring. A few weeks ago I shared a poem he wrote about early spring, but now that the season has finally come around, I want to share another, one I love even more.

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.

It’s more of a quote than a poem, but it’s poetic nonetheless. And it’s definitely true here—everywhere I look I see life blooming. I’m obsessed with flowering trees; cherry blossoms and magnolias are my favorites, and they’re everywhere now! Spring does feel like coming back alive after a long sleep, and this quote perfectly sums up how I feel about it!

That’s all. 🙂 Have a great day!signoff
