Work Overview

I was drawn to this and two other poems by Rainer Maria Rilke as their subject matter, although somewhat dark, resonates with a sense of delicate beauty amidst their spiritual undertones. 'Over and Over' places Rilke's depictions of love and death in a chant-like sparseness, leaving us with the final words "we lie
down, over and over, surrounded by flowers, facing the sky".
