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!

In meinem Garten die Nelken
mit ihrem Purpurstern
[müssen]1 nun alle verwelken,
   denn du bist fern.

Auf meinem Herde die Flammen
die ich bewacht so gern,
[sanken]2 in Asche zusammen,
   denn du bist fern.

Die Welt ist mir verdorben,
mich grüßt nicht Blume [nicht]3 Stern,
mein Herz ist lange gestorben,
   denn du bist fern.

Wohl waren es Tage der Sonne,
Die Bäume blühten im Mai,
Dein Blick sprach Liebeswonne -
Das ist vorbei.

Verblüht sind lange die Bäume,
Der Herbst ist kommen geschwind;
Die Träume, die schönen Träume
Verweht der Wind.

[Gute Nacht mein Herz]1 und schlummre ein!
In diesen Herbstestagen
Ohne Blumen und Sonnenschein
Was willst du schlagen?

Dein Schmerz ist aus, deine Lust ist todt,
Verweht sind Lenz und Lieder;
Der Liebe Röslein purpurroth
Blüht nimmer wieder.

Singend zog er ins Land hinein,
Der falsche, liebe Knabe -
Und du? - Im stillen Grabe
Schlafe mein Herz, schlaf' ein!
