Du liebes Auge, willst dich tauchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du liebes Auge, willst dich tauchen,
In meines Aug's geheimster Tiefe,
Zu späh'n, wo in blauen Gründen
Verborgen eine Perle schliefe?

Du liebes Auge, tauche nieder,
Und in die klare Tiefe dringe
Und lächle, wenn ich dir dies Bild
Als schönste Perle wiederbringe.

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 about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
