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!

Dir ist sonst der Mund verschlossen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dir ist sonst der Mund verschlossen,
Du antwortest mir ja kaum,
Nur zu Liedern süßen Klanges
Öffnest du ihn, wie im Traum.
Könnt ich auch so dichten, würden
Hübsch auch meine Lieder sein,
Sänge nur, wie ich dich liebe,
Sänge nur: ganz bin ich dein.

Ich kann dir ins Antlitz schauen,
Heiter, wie das Kind ins Licht;
Ich kann lieben, kosen, küssen,
Aber dichten kann ich nicht.
Könnt ich auch so dichten, würden
Hübsch auch meine Lieder sein,
Sänge nur, wie ich dich liebe,
Sänge nur: ganz bin ich dein.
