such a blessed sense of rest!”

“You do see me crossing the meadow
stiff and dead from the mist?
I long for that home,
that home I’ve never had,
and without any hope
that I’ll ever be able to reach it.
For such a home, never touched,
I carry that longing that will
never die, like that meadow dies
stiff and dead from the mist.
You do see me crossing it, full of dread?” 
― Robert Walser, Oppressive Light: Selected Poems by Robert Walser
