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!

L'onda dal mar divisa

Language: Italian (Italiano)

L'onda dal mar divisa
Bagna la valle e'l monte,
Va passeggera
In fiume,

Va prigioniera
In fonte,
Mormora sempre e geme
Fin che non torna al mar:

Al mar, dov' ella nacque,
Dove acquistò gli umori
Dove da'lunghi errori
Spera di riposar.

Leiden der Trennung

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

Vom Meere trennt sich die Welle,
Und seufzet durch Blumen im Thal,
Und fühlet gewiegt in der Quelle,
Gebannt in dem Brunnen nur - Qual!

[Sie sehnt sich,]1 die Welle,
In lispelnder Quelle,
Im murmelnden Bache,
Im Brunnengemache

Zum Meer, von dem sie kam,
[Aus]2 dem sie Leben nahm,
Von dem, des Irrens matt und müde,
Sie süße Ruh verhofft und Friede.
