Take Yourself Seriously

I read “Letters To A Young Poet” for you
We take books to bed and settle into a groove
Our days move so fast, there’s still too much to do
One of us should open up a window

For this reason we will never cease to grow
Going beyond great into the greater
Patience enough in ourselves that we may endure
Simplicity enough to believe it

Take yourself seriously
Everything mysteriously
Take yourself seriously
Everything mysteriously

Dedicated to Rainer Maria Rilke. Lyrics inspired by “Letters To A Young Poet”
