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!

Schon wieder bin ich fortgerissen

Language: German (Deutsch)

   Schon wieder bin ich [fortgerissen]1
Vom Herzen, das ich innig liebe,
Schon wieder bin ich fortgerissen --
O wüßtest du, wie gern ich bliebe!
   Der Wagen rollt, es dröhnt die Brücke,
Der Fluß darunter fließt so trübe;
Ich scheide wieder von dem Glücke.
Vom Herzen, das ich innig liebe.
   Am Himmel jagen hin die Sterne,
Als flöhen sie vor meinem [Schmerze]2 --
Leb wohl, Geliebte! In der Ferne.
Wo ich auch bin, blüht dir mein Herze.
