Rainer Maria Rilke Quotes – “Of all who move through the quiet houses, you are the quietest…”

You come and go. The doors swing closed
ever more gently, almost without a shudder.
Of all who move through the quiet houses,
you are the quietest.

We become so accustomed to you,
we no longer look up
when your shadow falls over the book we are reading
and makes it glow. For all things
sing you: at times
we just hear them more clearly.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 – 1926)
