This is my daily work

“This is my daily work over which
my shadow lies like a shell.
And even if I’m like leaves and loam,
whenever I pray or paint
it becomes like Sunday once again, and in the valley,
I’m the voice of a praising Jerusalem.”

Rainer Maria Rilke, Prayers of a Young Poet, No.49
[translated by Mark S.Burrows]
