Dear friends, we are turning 20 next year! Two years ago, 0.01% of all visitors made a donation. Last year, it was 0.02%. To all who have donated - a very warm thank you! Your generosity inspires me every day to keep going. Unfortunately, the current situation is not sustainable. Even if only 0.5% of visitors could make a donation, we could continue indefinitely - so please donate today and help keep this resource freely-available to all.    ---Emily Ezust, Founder

Der Schmetterling ist in die Rose verliebt,
Umflattert sie tausendmal,
Ihn selber aber goldig [zart]1
Umflattert der [liebende]2 Sonnenstrahl.

[Jedoch]3, in wen ist die Rose verliebt?
Das wüßt' ich gar [zu]4 gern.
Ist es die singende Nachtigall?
Ist [es]5 der schweigende Abendstern?

Ich weiß nicht, in [wen]6 die Rose verliebt;
Ich aber lieb' euch all:
[Rose]7, Schmetterling, Sonnenstrahl,
Abendstern und Nachtigall.
