Give yourself to the air

Fear not the pain. Let its weight fall back
into the earth;
for heavy are the mountains, heavy the seas.

The trees you planted in childhood have grown
too heavy.
You cannot bring them along.
Give yourselves to the air, to what you cannot hold.

Rilke, You who let yourselves feel
