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!

Die Lerche grüßt den ersten Strahl

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Lerche grüßt den ersten Strahl,
Daß er die Brust ihr zünde,
Wenn träge Nacht noch überall
Durchschleicht die tiefen Gründe.

Und du willst, Menschenkind, der Zeit
Verzagend unterliegen?
Was ist dein kleines Erdenleid?
Du mußt es überfliegen!

Meditazione 4 dalle "Meditazioni del viandante"

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Saluta l'allodola il primo raggio
Perché il suo cuore accende,
Mentre ancora la notte dappertutto
Striscia attraverso le valli profonde.
 
E tu vorresti, piccolo uomo, al tempo
Che passa, scoraggiato soccombere?
Quanto conta il tuo piccolo dolore terreno?
Devi trovare la forza di superarlo!
