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

Schlafen, Schlafen, nichts als Schlafen

Language: German (Deutsch)

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, 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.

Dormire, dormire, null'altro che dormire

Language: Italian (Italiano)

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!
