Response to Poem: "Archaic Torso of Apollo" by Rainer Maria Rilke

This poem needed a little extra reading for me. But once I could take everything in it made perfect sense and I found myself really appreciating it.  What a great way to describe how a seemingly incomplete statue could be so appreciated and admired. How many times we've sat and admired a piece of art not really knowing why we like it so much. If someone were to ask me in the future one day, while I sat admiring something, I will always think back this poem for guidance and inspiration to help me with my answers.

    First of all instead of wasting people’s time please post the poem first then post its essayontime. Because if someone who don’t know the poem how he or she will understand its explanation. Consider this as an advice my friend.
