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!

Wie die Wellenschaumgeborene

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie die Wellenschaumgeborene
Strahlt mein Lieb im Schönheitsglanz,
Denn sie ist das auserkorene
Bräutchen eines fremden Manns.

Herz, mein Herz, du vielgeduldiges,
Grolle nicht ob dem Verrat;
Trag es, trag es, und entschuldig es,
Was die holde Törin tat.

Прощение

Language: Russian (Русский) after the German (Deutsch)

Как из пены воссиявшая
Лучезарной красотой
Ты блистаешь ныне, ставшая
Не моею, а чужой.
 
Сердце, мукою томимое,
Об измене не грусти,
Будь покорно, и любимую,
Неразумную прости!
