Poetry Train…

I was busy all weekend, so I didn’t have time to write a new poem for everyone. I thought I’d give you one of my favorite quotes from Rainer Maria Rilke. It’s from his Letter to a Young Poet.

“How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”

I hope you have a great Monday and stop by Rhian’s blog to find out the other stops on the train.
