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!

So hast du ganz und gar vergessen

Language: German (Deutsch)

So hast du ganz und gar vergessen,
Daß ich so lang dein Herz besessen,
Dein Herzchen so süß und so falsch und so klein,
Es kann nirgend was süßres und falscheres sein.

So hast du die Lieb und das Leid vergessen,
Die das Herz mir täten zusammenpressen.
Ich weiß nicht, war Liebe größer als Leid?
Ich weiß nur, sie waren groß alle beid!

Dimenticar, ben mio, come hai potuto

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Dimenticar, ben mio, come hai potuto
Che il tuo cor tanto tempo ho posseduto?
Quel cor si falso e caro! Ove trovare
Cose che sien più false e insiem più care?

Come hai l'amore e il duolo dimenticato
Che tanto tempo il cor m'hanno straziato?
Io non saprei dei due qual fu il maggior:
So che grande fu il duolo, grande l'amor!
