Now, on the contrary, the essence of nearness appears to be that it brings near that which is near, yet keeping it at a distance. This nearness to the origin is a mystery. But now, if homecoming signifies becoming at home in nearness to the origin, then must not the return home consist first of all, and perhaps for a long time, in knowing the mystery of this nearness, or even prior to "Homecoming / To Kindred Ones" $ this, in learning to know it? Yet we never know a mystery by unveiling or analyzing it to death, but only in such a way that we preserve the mystery as mystery.
Homecoming is the return to the nearness to the origin. Only he can return home who previously, and perhaps for a long time, has wandered as a traveler and borne upon himself the burden of the journey upon his shoulders, and has crossed over into the origin, so that there he might experience what that is which was to be sought, in order then, as the seeker, to come back more experienced. What you seek, it is near, already comes to meet you. The nearness that now prevails lets what is near be near, and yet at the same time lets it remain what is sought, and thus not near.
It is near. But that which is sought is not yet found if "find" means to appropriate what is found, make it one's own, and to live with it as though it were a possession. But the best, the real find, which lies beneath the rainbow Of holy peace, is reserved for young and old. Hölderlin later changed a second fair copy of this poem, and instead of "but the best, the real find . . " he wrote the words "But the treasure, the German . . " All that is most unique to the homeland was prepared long ago, and apportioned to those who lived in the land of one's birth.
