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!

Über Bergen, Fluß und Talen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Über Bergen, Fluß und Talen,
Stiller Lust und tiefen Qualen
Webet heimlich, schillert, Strahlen!
Sinnend ruht des Tags Gewühle
In der dunkelblauen Schwüle,
Und die ewigen Gefühle,
Was dir selber [unbewußt]1,
Treten heimlich, groß und leise
Aus der Wirrung fester Gleise,
Aus der unbewachten Brust,
In die stillen, weiten Kreise.

Siesta

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

Sulle montagne, sui fiumi e le valli
segrete gioie e profondi tormenti
tessete, raggi, in colori cangianti!
Riposa pensoso il trambusto del giorno
nell'afa azzurro scuro,
e i sentimenti eterni,
a te stesso ignoti,
affiorano furtivi, forti e sommessi,
dal labirinto dei consueti percorsi,
fuori dall'animo senza difese,
in spazi vasti e silenziosi.
