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!

3. Mein Heimweh


Mein Heimweh und meine Liebe
Ist heut in dieser heißen Nacht
Süß wie ein Duft von fremden Blumen
Zu heißem Leben aufgewacht.

Mein Heimweh und meine Liebe
Und all mein Glück und Mißgeschick
Steht wie ein stummes Lied geschrieben
In deinem dunklen Märchenblick.

Mein Heimweh und meine Liebe,
Der Welt und allem Lärm entflohn,
Hat sich in deinen dunklen Augen
Erbaut einen heimlichen Königsthron.


Confirmed with Hermann Hesse, Sämtliche Werke, herausgegeben von Volker Michels, Band 10 Die Gedichte, bearbeitet von Peter Huber, Frankfurt am Main: Suhrkamp Verlag, 2002, page 31.
