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!

Was blickst du träumend ins verwölkte Land?
Ich gab mein Herz in deine schöne Hand.
Es ist so voll von ungesagtem Glück,
So heiß - hast du es nicht gefühlt?

Mit fremdem Lächeln gibst du mir's zurück.
Ein sanfter Schmerz ... Es schweigt. Es ist gekühlt.

Auch zu mir kommst du einmal,
Du vergißt mich nicht,
Und zu Ende ist die Qual
Und die Kette bricht.

Noch erscheinst du fremd und fern,
Lieber Bruder Tod.
Stehest als ein kühler Stern
Über meiner Not.

Aber einmal wirst du nah
Und voll Flammen sein --
Komm, Geliebter, ich bin da,
Nimm mich, ich bin dein.
