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!

Beim Abschied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich müh' mich ab und kann's nicht verschmerzen
Und kann's nicht verwinden in meinem Herzen,
Daß ich den und jenen soll sehen,
Im Kreis um mich herum sich drehen,
Der mich nicht machte froh noch trübe,
Ob er nun ging' oder bliebe,
Und nur die Eine soll von mir wandern,
Für die ich ertragen all die andern.

Bij het afscheid

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Ik mat mij af en kan ‘t niet verkroppen,
En kan in mijn hart het chagrijn niet stoppen,
Dat ik lieden moet accepteren,
Die om mij heen alsmaar flaneren,
En van wie het me worst zal wezen:
Blijven ze hier, gaan ze sjezen?
Maar slechts die ene wil van mij weggaan,
Voor wie ‘k1 al die and’ren net kan uitstaan.
