Nocturne in E Flat Major

Forget, forget, and let us live now
only this, how the stars pierce through
cleared nocturnal sky; how the moon’s whole disk
surmounts the gardens.  We’ve sensed so long already
how the darkness breeds many mirrors: how a gleam
takes shape, a white shadow in the radiance
of night.  But now let us cross over
and invest this world where
everything is lunar-

-Rainer Maria Rilke

(translated from German)
