Rilke is one of the timeless poets who always challenges my thinking. I get set in my ways and think the world is as I understand it, but as Rilke points out it might be something quite different. As a teacher, I always understood the necessity of relationships with children, particularly those who struggled academically, socially, emotionally, etc. It provided not just them with a sense of hope, but I think it provided me with a sense of hope, as well.
