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!

Im Mondenglanze ruht das Meer,
die Wogen murmeln leise;
mir wird das Herz so bang und schwer,
ich denk der alten Weise,
der alten Weise, die uns singt
von den verlornen Städten,
wo aus dem Meeresgrunde klingt
Glockengeläut und Beten -
Das Läuten und das Beten, wißt,
wird nicht den Städten frommen,
denn was einmal begraben ist,
das kann nicht wiederkommen.

Lethe! Brich die Fesseln des Ufers, gieße 
Aus der Schattenwelt mir herüber deine 
Welle, daß den Wunden der bangen Seel' ich
  Trinke Genesung.1

Frühling kommt mit Duft und Gesang und Liebe,
Will wie sonst mir sinken ans Herz; doch schlägt ihm 
Nicht das Herz entgegen wie sonst. -- O Lethe! 
  Sende die Welle!
