pans labyrinth- rilke

You, darkness that I come from,
I love you more than all the fires
that fence in the world, for the fire makes a circle of light for everyone and then
no one outside learns of you.
But the darkness pulls in everything-
Shapes and fires, animals and myself,
how easily it gathers them!… And it is possible a great presence is moving
near me. I have faith in nights.
