Autumn By Rainer Maria Wilke (1875-1926)


Tree leaves are falling, from grey sky,
as if orchards were aging quickly
without knowing why,
Each fallen leaf tells us that
death is the motion of “no”.
And tonight the heavy earth murmurs,
withdrawing from the milky way in loneliness.
Our hearts sink. our hands hand low,
Letting the weigh of maturity go.
Yet, there is someone, whose hands
are forever irony and steely,
withholding the stress from the Fall.

The promotion of poetry and poets is very dear to me. This is not a place to post individual posts. It is simply a promotional blog list. Please help me with this by posting your blog at the following URL:
