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!

Tief Blick in Blick, heiß Mund an Mund

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tief Blick in Blick, heiß Mund an Mund, 
Laß Herz am Herzen schlagen! 
Doch was die Lieb' ist, liebes Kind,
Das mußt du mich nicht fragen! 

Was Lieb' ist, das erleb' ich jetzt 
In lauter Glück verloren. 
Und die Erklärung -- laß sie nur 
Den liebelosen Thoren.

Was soll das Wort? -- Den sel'gen Blick,
Den stillen Druck der Hände,
Den heißen Kuß erschöpfst du nicht 
In Worten sonder Ende.

O liebe nur, o liebe nur, 
O seufze, schmachte, weine, 
O juble, lach'! -- es bleibt die Lieb' 
In allem -- ewig eine.

Tief Blick in Blick, heiß Mund an Mund,
Laß Herz am Herzen schlagen! 
Doch was die Lieb' ist, liebes Kind,
Das mußt du mich nicht fragen!
