Der Liebe himmliches Gefühl

Language: German

Der Liebe himmlisches Gefühl
Ist nicht an unsre Macht gebunden.
Ein einz'ger Blick entscheidet viel,
Noch hat mein Herz ihn nicht gefunden;
Ich wart', ich wart' mit Zuversicht.

Wenn die Natur mich lieben heisst,
Wird dieses Herz schon selbst empfinden.
Umsonst beschäftig sich mein Geist,
Nur sie kann Herzen wohl verbinden,
Nur sie, die Klugheit kann es nicht.

Notes about green, red, and white dots

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 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.
