Of Course It’s Rilke

“…Ah, poems amount to so little when you write them too early in your life. You ought to wait and gather sense and sweetness for a whole lifetime, and a long one if possible, and then, at the very end, you might perhaps be able to write ten good lines.”

From THE NOTEBOOKS OF MALTE LAURIDS BRIGGE
