Ihr Auge

Language: German

Nimm einen Strahl der Sonne,
     vom Abendstern das Licht,
Die Feuerglut des Aetna,
     die aus der Lava bricht -
Du hast, was mich erhellt
     und mich erwärmt und mich verklärt, -
Und was mein innres Leben
     bis in den Tod verzehrt!

Gentle Reminder
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 was supported financially last year 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.
