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!

Daß der Ostwind Düfte

Language: German (Deutsch)

Daß der Ostwind Düfte
Hauchet in die Lüfte,
Dadurch thut er kund,
Daß du hier gewesen.

Weil hier Thränen rinnen,
Dadurch wirst du innen,
Wär's dir sonst nicht kund,
Daß ich hier gewesen.

Schönheit oder Liebe,
Ob versteckt sie bliebe?
Düfte thun es und
Thränen kund,
Daß sie hier gewesen.

Dat zij hier geweest zijn

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

Laat de oostenwind geuren
In de lucht bespeuren,
Dan roept hij in 't rond
Dat jij hier geweest bent.

Als hier tranen stromen,
Dan maar aangenomen,
Als je 't al niet vond,
Dat ik hier geweest ben.

Schoonheid dan wel liefde
Die geen zicht beliefde:
Geuren doen, net als tranen, kond
Dat zij hier geweest zijn.
