Dear friends, we are turning 20 next year! Two years ago, 0.01% of all visitors made a donation. Last year, it was 0.02%. To all who have donated - a very warm thank you! Your generosity inspires me every day to keep going. Unfortunately, the current situation is not sustainable. Even if only 0.5% of visitors could make a donation, we could continue indefinitely - so please donate today and help keep this resource freely-available to all.    ---Emily Ezust, Founder

Barcarole

Language: German (Deutsch)

Leise streift die Welle ans Boot,
Flüstert den Sang der Flut,
Rings die Berge im Abendrot
Halten den See in Hut.

Wie so oft im Wellentanz
Trug mich mein wonniger See!
Alles deckte der Lenzesglanz,
Ahnen und Bangen und Weh!

Tausend Stürme sind nun vertost,
Mancher noch tückisch harrt;
Doch der Wind bläst so fröhlich von Ost,
Ladet zu fröhlicher Fahrt.

Trag mich, Schifflein, zum duftigen Strand,
Einsam und rosenumhegt.
Dort im lieblichen Wunderland
Ahnen und Bangen sich legt.

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.
