Die Mühle ohne Wasser

Language: German

 Die Mühle klappert Nacht und Tag,
 Frisch treibt der Bach das Rad.
 Mein Herz schlägt, was es schlagen mag,
 Ob's auch sein Bächlein hat?

 Sag' weißt du, Herz, was dich so treibt,
 Was dir nicht Ruhe gibt?
 Wenn einst dein Rädchen stehen bleibt,
 Dann denke, dann denke,
 Sie hat mich nie geliebt.

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, it 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.
