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 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Liane

Language: German (Deutsch)

»Hast du Lianen nicht geseh'n?«
»Ich sah sie zu dem Teiche geh'n.«
Durch Busch und Hecken rennt er fort,
Und kommt zu ihrem Lieblingsort.

Die Linde spannt ihr grünes Netz,
Aus Rosen tönt des Bachs Geschwätz;
Die Blätter röthet Sonnengold,
Und Alles ist der Freude hold.

Liane fährt auf einem Kahn,
Vertraute Schwäne nebenan.
Sie spielt die Laute, singt ein Lied,
Wie Liebe in ihr selig blüht.

Das Schifflein schwanket, wie es will.
Sie senkt das Haupt, und denket still
Nur ihn - der im Gebüsche ist,
Sie bald in seine Arme schließt.
