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!

Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen,
Mit der ich sonst viele Zeit verdorben,
Sie hat so lange [von mir nichts]1 vernommen,
Sie mag wohl glauben, ich sei gestorben.

Es ist mir auch gar nichts daran gelegen,
Ob sie mich für gestorben hält,
Ich kann auch gar nichts sagen dagegen,
Denn wirklich bin ich gestorben der Welt.

Ich bin gestorben dem [Weltgewimmel]2,
Und ruh' in einem stillen Gebiet.
Ich leb' allein [in mir und meinem]3 Himmel,
In meinem Lieben, in meinem Lied.

Je suis perdu pour le monde

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Je suis perdu pour le monde,
Avec qui j'ai perdu beaucoup de temps ;
Il n'a rien entendu de moi depuis si longtemps,
Qu'il peut bien me croire mort !

Et il m'importe peu
Si le monde pense que je suis mort.
Je ne peux rien y redire,
Car je suis vraiment mort au monde.

Je suis mort au tumulte du monde
Et je repose dans une région tranquille.
Je vis seul dans mon ciel,
Dans mon amour, dans mon chant.
