Language: German

O du lieblicher Kelch umwoben von Duft,
Von Purpurschimmer durchfunkelt, --
Sanft lodern in dir die Flammen
Des Schönen in Eine zusammen, --
Und blüh'st doch über des Lebens Gruft,
Von schwarzen Cypressen umdunkelt.
Bist du aus jener anderen Welt
Als freundliches Zeichen entboten,
Daß einst im Frieden des Schönen
Das Leben sich werde versöhnen? 
  Geisterhauch sächelt da Gräberfeld:
  Selig, selig die Todten.

Notes about green, red, and white dots

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.
