The Lied, Art Song, and Choral Texts Archive


Language: German

In stumme schwarze Wogen
Versank der Jugend Stern,
Mein Lieb ist fortgezogen
In weite, weite Fern.

Um ihre Hütte wandl' ich
Nun jede liebe Nacht,
Zu ihrem Fenster schau ich
Empor, ob Liebchen wacht.

Das Fenster sieht so traurig,
Am Himmel blinkt kein Stern,
Die Winde lispeln schaurig:
Sie bleibt dir ewig fern.

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.
