Schlafen, Schlafen...

Language: German

Schlafen, Schlafen, nichts als Schlafen!
  Kein Erwachen, [keinen Traum!]1
Jener Wehen, die mich trafen,
  Leisestes Erinnern kaum,
Daß ich, wenn des Lebens Fülle
  Niederklingt in meine Ruh',
Nur noch tiefer mich verhülle,
  Fester zu die Augen tu!

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.

Dormire, dormire, null'altro che dormire

Language: Italian

Dormire, dormire, null'altro che dormire!
Non risveglio, non sogni!
Di ogni pena, che mi ha colpito,
non il più piccolo ricordo.
Così, quando la piena della vita
mi sommerge a turbare la mia pace,
io ancora più a fondo mi nascondo,
e gli occhi serro ancora più forte!
