Metaphorical Writing: Initiation by Rilke

INITIATION
Whosoever thou art! Out in the evening roam,
Out from thy room thou know’st in every part,
And far in the dim distance leave thy home,
Whosoever thou art.

The shadows on the foot-worn threshold fall,
Lift thine eyes slowly to the great dark tree
That stands against heaven, solitary, tall,
And thou hast visioned Life, its meanings rise
Like words that in the silence clearer grow;
As they unfold before thy will to know
Gently withdraw thine eyes—
