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!

Depuis que nul rayon de tes yeux...

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Depuis que nul rayon de tes yeux bien-aimés
N'arrive plus aux miens obstinément fermés,
Je suis enveloppé de ténèbres morales.
L'étoile de l'amour s'est éteinte pour moi
Plus de douce clarté, rien que l'ombre et l'effroi!
Un gouffre large ouvert me veut dans ses spirales
Nuit éternelle engloutis-moi!
