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 May 6, we are $2,380 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 to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Herz, mein Herz, sei nicht beklommen,
und ertrage dein Geschick,
neuer Frühling gibt zurück,
was der Winter dir genommen.

Und wie viel ist dir geblieben,
und wie schön ist noch die Welt!
Und, mein Herz, was dir gefällt,
alles, alles darfst du lieben!

Wo ich bin, mich rings umdunkelt
Finsterniß so dumpf und dicht,
Seit mir nicht mehr leuchtend funkelt,
Liebste, deiner Augen Licht.

[Mir]1 erloschen ist der süßen
Liebessterne goldne Pracht,
Abgrund gähnt zu meinen Füßen.
Nimm mich auf, uralte Nacht.

Wandl' ich [in dem]1 Wald des Abends,
In dem träumerischen Wald,
Immer wandelt mir zur Seite
Deine zärtliche Gestalt.
 
Ist es nicht dein weißer Schleier?
Nicht dein sanftes Angesicht?
Oder ist es nur der Mondschein,
Der durch Tannendunkel bricht?
 
Sind es meine eignen Tränen
Die ich leise rinnen hör'?
Oder gehst du, Liebste, [wirklich]2
Weinend neben mir einher?
