Best Dragon Quote Ever? From Rilke

   Posted by: Moses Siregar III

Rainer Maria Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke

From Rainer Maria Rilke (context):

“Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.”

I found it in the comments on a Lev Grossman post about “The Best Thing Anybody Ever Said About Fantasy.” Some great stuff there.

I Wrote a Poem Today

   Posted by: Moses Siregar III

Stopping

Why do I fear the summer sky?
Childhood sweethearts, laying down on the trampoline in her back yard, did not.
That boy Moses walked the moist Georgia grass and removed shoes,
drifted beside an angel and embraced the wispy white.

All this heaven, present, majestic.
Natural, God-lit, Sunday’s best.
To gaze and rest my eyes,
to fly.
