Saturday Poetry Corner 2: Einsamkeit

Rainer Maria Rilke. Not his most famous Duineian Elegies or Sonnets to Orpheus but a little, short poem about loneliness.

I also have to admit, I really don't like* the English translation. I hope there's a better one because it does not do this poem a justice. I don't speak German but I heard it performed and the cadence and rhythm was just amazing. English version retains none of it.

I love poetry. I always have. That is why I will be posting from time to time some of my favorite poems.

The first one is an obvious choice, given the banner ruling over this blog for, I think, 7 or 8 years.

One of the best tv series that came out recently.
