As In A Small Bud

By November 18, 2012

Follow me on:

Like sleeping infants the gods
breathe without any plan;
the spirit flourishes continually
in them, chastely kept,
as in a small bud,
and their holy eyes
look out in still
eternal clearness.

~ Friedrich Holderlin
(excerpt from "Hyperion's Song Of Destiny")
