catkins on tree

“But suppose the endlessly dead were to wake in us some emblem: they might point to the catkins hanging from the empty hazel trees, or direct us to the rain descending on black earth in early spring. — And we, who always think of happiness rising, would feel the emotion that almost baffles us when a happy thing falls.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke
