lyrics, poems, etc.

Random interesting lyrics/poetry that has caught my attention for the first time (or again) recently:

"We're fair just when we praise, because
we are the saw and the bough of spring
and the sweetness of danger ripening."
-Rainer Maria Rilke
Book: Sonnets to Orpheus, book 2
Howard A. Landman, translator

"Treat your enemies carefully/
because they will define you"
"Cedars of Lebanon"
Album: No Line on the Horizon

"I love this mansion
Though it's too many windows
To open halfway each morning
To close halfway each night"
-Jim Carroll
"Blood Bridge"
Book: Fear of Dreaming
