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!

Des Jägers Klage

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das Mühlrad brauset, das Wasser zerstiebt
Zu eitel Blasen und Schaum;
Dich, schöne Müllerin, hab' ich geliebt,
Das war ein seliger Traum.
Nun kehr' ich zurück in den wilden Hag
Zu meinen Hirschen und Reh'n.
Nun will ich auch wieder den ganzen Tag
Den Wald mit der Büchse durchspäh'n.
Doch sieht durch der Wipfel webende Nacht
Der Mond mit silbernem Schein.
Dann blas' ich auf meinem Waldhorn sacht
Und denke im Herzen dein.
Bald kommt auch die stille, die stille Zeit,
Da schlaf' ich im grünen Revier,
Der Wald nur rauschet noch weit und breit,
Und niemand fraget nach mir.
