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 17, we are $5,700 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 renovation possible!

Gefaßter Abschied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weine nicht, daß ich jetzt gehe,
heiter lass' dich von mir küssen.
Blüht das Glück nicht aus der Nähe,
fernher wirds dich keuscher grüssen.

Nimm die Blumen, die ich pflückte,
Monatsrosen rot und Nelken -
laß die Trauer, die dich drückte,
Herzens Blume kann nicht welken.

Lächle nicht mit bitterm Lächeln,
stosse mich nicht stumm zur Seite.
Linde Luft wird bald dich fächeln,
bald ist Liebe dein Geleite!

Gib die Hand mir ohne Zittern,
letztem Kuß gib alle Wonne.
Bang' vor Sturm nicht: aus Gewittern
strahlender geht auf die Sonne...

Schau zuletzt die schöne Linde,
drunter uns kein Aug' erspähte.
Glaub', daß ich dich wiederfinde,
ernten wird, wer Liebe säte!
Weine nicht!...
