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!

Jegliche Gestalt bekleidend

Language: German (Deutsch)

Jegliche Gestalt bekleidend,
Bin ich stets in deiner Nähe,
Aber immer bin ich leidend,
Und du tust mir immer wehe.

Wenn du, zwischen Blumenbeeten
Wandelnd in des Sommers Tagen,
Einen Schmetterling zertreten -
Hörst du mich nicht leise klagen?

Wenn du eine Rose pflückest,
Und mit kindischem Behagen
Sie entblätterst und zerstückest -
Hörst du mich nicht leise klagen?

Wenn bei solchem Rosenbrechen
Böse Dornen einmal wagen
In die Finger dich zu stechen -
Hörst du mich nicht leise klagen?

Hörst du nicht die Klagetöne
Selbst im Ton der eignen Kehle?
In der Nacht seufz ich und stöhne
Aus der Tiefe deiner Seele.

K. Stougie sets stanzas 2-5
