To Touch the Sky contains Willis Barnstone's translations of some of the most inspiring writing of world literature: ten mystical and spiritual poets spanning three thousand years.

Included are

  • The Song of Songs
  • Poems (Sappho)
  • The Cosmic Fragments (Herakleitos)
  • Saying Poems (Yeshua the Messiah)
  • Apocalypse (John of Patmos)
  • Taoist and Buddhist Poems (Wang Wei)
  • Allegorical Bestiary (Bishop Theobaldus)
  • Mystical Poems (Mira Bai)
  • Mystical Poems (St. John of the Cross)
  • Sonnets to Orpheus (Rainer Maria Rilke)

The poetry included here spans three thousand years and contains some of the most profound and inspiring writing of world literature: some following the way of fantastic realism while some is mysto-erotic. As Barnstone says: "[I]n the instance of our authors, the unsayable has been refashioned into the precision of poetry."
