Ah! how sweet it is to love
Ah! how sweet it is to love;
how gay is young desire!
And what pleasing pains we prove,
When first we feel a lover's fire;
Pains of love are sweeter far,
Than all other pleasures are.

This website began in 1995 as a personal project, and I have been working
on it full-time without a salary since 2008. Our research has
never had any government or institutional funding, so if you
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
