Synopsis

“And one of them stands up and is astounded by this splendor. And his way of being makes him wait, to see if he wakes up. Because only in dreams does one see such splendor and such celebrations with such women: their tiniest gesture is a fold, falling into a brocade. They build hours of silver conversations, and often they raise their hands thus –, and you are forced to believe that, in some place you cannot reach, they pick delicate roses that you do not see. And then you begin to dream: to be decorated by them and be happy in another way and deserve a crown for your brow, which is naked.”
Extract from “The Lay of the Love and Death of Cornet Christopher Rilke“
