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!

Es hat die warme Frühlingsnacht
Die Blumen hervorgetrieben,
Und nimmt mein Herz sich nicht in acht,
So wird es sich wieder verlieben.

Doch welche von den Blumen alln
Wird mir das Herz umgarnen?
Es wollen die singenden Nachtigalln
Mich vor der Lilje warnen.

  Die blauen Frühlingsaugen
Schau'n aus dem Gras hervor;
Das sind das [lieben]1 Veilchen,
Die ich zum Strauß erkor.

  Ich pflücke sie und denke,
Und die Gedanken all,
Die mir im Herzen seufzen,
Singt laut die Nachtigall.

  Ja, was ich denke, singt sie
[Lautschmetternd]2, daß es schallt;
Mein zärtliches Geheimnis
Weiß schon der ganze Wald.

In dem Walde sprießt und grünt es
Fast jüngfräulich lustbeklommen;
Doch die Sonne lacht herunter:
Junger Frühling, sei willkommen!

Nachtigall! auch dich schon hör' ich,
Wie du flötest seligtrübe
Schluchzend langgezogne Töne,
Und dein Lied ist lauter Liebe!
