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!

Liebe Schwalbe, kleine Schwalbe,
Du fliegst auf und singst so früh,
Streuest durch die Himmelsbläue
Deine süße Melodie.

Die da schlafen noch am Morgen,
Alle Liebenden in Ruh',
Mit dem zwitschernden Gesange
Die Versunk'nen weckest du.

Auf! nun auf! ihr Liebesschläfer,
Weil die Morgenschwalbe rief:
Denn die Nacht wird den betrügen,
Der den hellen Tag verschlief.

Klagen ist der Mond [gekommen]1,
Vor der Sonne Angesicht,
Soll ihm noch der Himmel frommen,
Da du Glanz ihm nahmst und Licht?

Seine Sterne ging er zählen,
Und er will vor Leid vergehn:
Zwei der schönsten Sterne fehlen,
Die in deinem Antlitz stehn.

Fensterlein, nachts bist du zu,
Tust auf dich am Tag mir zu Leide:
Mit Nelken umringelt bist du;
O öffne dich, Augenweide!

Fenster aus köstlichen Stein,
Drinnen die Sonne, die Sterne da draußen,
O Fensterlein heimlich und klein,
Sonne [darinnen und Rosen daraußen]1.

Ich gehe des Nachts, wie der Mond tut gehn,
Ich suche, wo den Geliebten sie haben:
Da hab ich den Tod, den finstern, gesehn.
Er sprach: such nicht, ich hab ihn begraben.

Blaues Sternlein, du sollst schweigen,
Das Geheimnis gib nicht kund.
Sollst nicht allen Leuten zeigen
Unsern stillen [Liebesbund]1.

Mögen andre stehn in Schmerzen,
Jeder sage, was er will;
Sind zufrieden unsre Herzen,
Sind wir beide gerne still.

Briefchen schrieb und warf in den Wind ich,
Sie fielen ins Meer, und sie fielen auf Sand.
Ketten von Schnee und von Eise, die bind' ich,
Die Sonne zerschmilzt sie in meiner Hand.

Maria, Maria, du sollst es dir merken:
Am Ende gewinnt, wer dauert im Streit,
Maria, Maria, das sollst du bedenken:
Es siegt, wer dauert in Ewigkeit.
