Rilke -

   I believe in all that has never yet been spoken,
    I want to free what waits within me
    so that what no one has dared to wish for
    may for once spring clear
    without my contriving.

    If this is arrogant, God, forgive me, but this is what I need to
    say.  May what I do flow from me like a river,
    no forcing and no holding back,
    the way it is with children.

    Then, in these swelling and ebbing currents,
    these deepening tides, moving out, returning,
    I will sing you as no one ever has,
    streaming through
       widening channels
       into the open sea.
