Why has he gone where I cannot follow?”

    Rainer Maria Rilke
    “If there were a place that we didn't know of, and there,
    on some unsayable carpet, lovers displayed
    what they never could bring to mastery here – the bold
    exploits of their high-flying hearts,
    their towers of pleasure, their ladders
    that have long since been standing where there was no ground, leaning
    just on each other, trembling, - and could master all this,
    before the surrounding spectators, the innumerable soundless dead:
    Would these, then, throw down their final, forever saved-up,
    forever hidden, unknown to us, eternally valid
    coins of happiness before the at last
    genuinely smiling pair on the gratified carpet?”
    Rainer Maria Rilke
