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!

Deine weißen Lilienfinger

Language: German (Deutsch)

Deine weißen Lilienfinger,
Könnt ich sie noch einmal küssen,
Und sie drücken an mein Herz,
Und vergehn in stillem Weinen! 

Deine klaren Veilchenaugen
Schweben vor mir Tag und Nacht,
Und mich quält es: was bedeuten
Diese süßen, blauen Rätsel?


Translation(s): DUT ENG ENG FRE SWE
