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!

Graues Land

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wolken in dämmernder Röte
droh'n über dem einsamen Feld.
Wie ein Mann mit trauriger Flöte
geht der Herbst durch die Welt.

Du kannst seine Nähe nicht fassen,
nicht lauschen der Melodie.
Und doch: in dem fahlen Verblassen
der Felder fühlst du sie.

Translation(s): SWE
