The wishing stream
Fair stream, whose arms from snow above
About the mountains twine,
Would that the arms of one I love,
Were clasped as close as thine.
For as thy ripples, crest on crest,
Print kisses on thy shore,
So would I clasp her to my breast,
And kiss her o'er and o'er.

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.
