With Rilke on an Ordinary Evening in Indiana -- Sonnets to Orpheus -- A tree sprang into life -- And it was almost a girl -- A god can do it -- O you delicate ones -- Raise no memorial stone -- Does he live among us? -- To praise is foremost! -- Only in the realm of praising -- Only one who has raised the lyre -- I welcome you, ancient coffins -- Look at the heavens -- I cheer the spirit -- Fat apple, banana, gooseberry -- We are absorbed in blossom -- Wait. It tastes good -- My friend, you are lonely -- Way down under roots -- Master, do you hear? -- Although the world changes form -- What can I dedicate to you, lord? -- Spring has come again -- We drive on -- A day flight won't soar -- Shall we reject our ancient friendship? -- But you whom I knew like a flower -- You, holy Orpheus, poet -- Breathing, you invisible poem! -- I -- Just as the master's genuine brushstroke -- Mirrors, no one has ever yet described -- O here you have the beast -- Flowermuscle of the anemone -- Rose on your throne -- Flowers, you sisters -- O you few playmates left -- Judges, don't boast -- All we have gained, the machine threatens -- Many rules of death -- Desire change -- Be ahead of all leaving -- Observe these flowers -- O fountain mouth -- Orpheus, whom we have torn apart -- Where, in what blissfully watered gardens -- Dancer, O you translate -- Gold lives somewhere -- Between the stars -- Sing about gardens -- O despite fate -- Summon me -- O this joy always new -- Listen -- How the cry of a bird -- Does time the destroyer -- O come and go -- Silent friend of many distances -- Notes -- Chronology -- Note on Translation
