You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Der Schmetterling ist in die Rose verliebt,
Umflattert sie tausendmal,
Ihn selber aber goldig [zart]1
Umflattert der [liebende]2 Sonnenstrahl.

[Jedoch]3, in wen ist die Rose verliebt?
Das wüßt' ich gar [zu]4 gern.
Ist es die singende Nachtigall?
Ist [es]5 der schweigende Abendstern?

Ich weiß nicht, in [wen]6 die Rose verliebt;
Ich aber lieb' euch all:
[Rose]7, Schmetterling, Sonnenstrahl,
Abendstern und Nachtigall.

  • ENG English [singable] (Virginia Woods, Mrs. John P. Morgan) , "Young Werner"


Sonne taucht in Meeresfluten,
Himmel [strahlt]1 in letzten Gluten,
Langsam will der Tag verscheiden,
Ferne Abendglocken läuten.
Dein gedenk' ich, Margaretha!

Haupt gelehnt [an]2 Felsens Kante,
Fremder Mann in [fremden]3 Lande.
Um den [Fels]4 die Wellen schäumen,
Durch die Seele zieht ein Träumen.
Dein gedenk' ich, Margaretha!

Daß du mich liebst, daß wußt' ich,
Ich hatt' es längst entdeckt;
Doch als du mir's gestanden,
Hat es mich tief erschreckt.

Ich stieg wohl auf die Berge
Und jubelte und sang;
Ich ging ans Meer und weinte
Beim Sonnenuntergang.

Mein Herz ist wie die Sonne
So flammend anzusehn,
Und in ein Meer von Liebe
Versinkt es groß und schön.

Nun ist es Herbst, die Blätter fallen,
  Den Wald durchbraust des Scheidens Weh;
Den Lenz und seine Nachtigallen
  [Versäumt']1 ich auf der wüsten See.

Der Himmel schien so mild, so helle,
  Verloren ging sein warmes Licht;
Es blühte nicht die Meereswelle,
  Die rohen Winde sangen nicht.

Und mir verging die Jugend traurig,
  Des Frühlings Wonne blieb versäumt;
Der Herbst durchweht mich trennungsschaurig,
  Mein Herz dem Tod entgegenträumt.
