I Find You – Rainer Maria Rilke (translated by Robert Bly)

I find you in all these things of the world
that I love calmly, like a brother;
in things that no one cares for you brood like a seed;
and to powerful things you give an immense power.

Strength plays such a marvelous game –
it moves through the things of the world like a servant,
groping out in roots, tapering in trunks,
and in the treetops like a rising from the dead.
