by Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)

Abandon entouré d'abandon
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): GER
Abandon entouré d'abandon,
tendresse touchant aux tendresses...
C'est ton intérieur qui sans cesse
se caresse, dirait-on ;

se caresse en soi-même,
par son propre reflet éclairé.
Ainsi tu inventes le thème
du Narcisse exhaucé.
