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!

Mit deinen blauen Augen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mit deinen blauen Augen
Siehst du mich [lieblich]1 an,
Da ward mir so träumend zu Sinne,
Daß ich nicht sprechen kann.
An deinen blauen Augen
Gedenk' ich allerwärts:
Ein Meer von blauen Gedanken
Ergießt sich über mein Herz.

Met jouw twee blauwe ogen

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

Met jouw twee blauwe ogen
Kijk jij mij lieflijk aan,
Het werd mij zo droom’rig te moede,
Dat ik niet spreken kan.

Aan jouw twee blauwe ogen
Denk ik nu dag en nacht:
Een zee van blauwe gedachten
Golft over mijn hart met kracht.
