Ein Vögelein fliegt über den Rhein
Fliegt über den Rhein
Und wiegt die Flügel
Und grüne Flut
[ In goldner Glut. -]1
Wie wohl das tut,
So hoch erhoben
Beim Vöglein droben,
O, wär' ich auch!

Notes about green, red, and white dots
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors.
So if you found
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
