She who reconciles the ill-matched threads

                                                 Wer Seines Lebens Viele Widersinne

She who reconciles the ill-matched threads
of her life, and weaves them gratefully
                                                                                into a single cloth —
                                                                              it’s she who drives the loudmouths from the hall
                                                                            and clears it for a different celebration

                                                                       where the one guest is you.
                                                                     In the softness of evening
                                                                   it’s you she receives.
                                                                You are the partner of her loneliness,

                                                              the unspeaking center of her monologues.
                                                            With each disclosure you encompass more
                                                          and she stretches beyond what limits her,
                                                        to hold you.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Vermont View


In between those near hills in Vermont and those far hills in New York
lies (hidden here) Lake Champlain.
