Aus deinem Auge blitzend klar
Strahlt Licht so unermessen.
Ich habe die Nacht, die draussen liegt,
Vergessen, vergessen.

An deinem Busen ruhe ich süss
Und Friede ist indessen.
Ich habe den Sturm, der draussen tost,
Vergessen, vergessen.

Aus deinem Munde höre ich hold
Ein Wort, den Namen--wessen?
Den meinen! und ich habe die Welt
Vergessen, vergessen!

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.
