In diesen welken Tagen, wo Alles bald zu Ende ist, sturmzerfetzte Sonnenblumen über dunkle Zäune ragen, Wolken jagen und den Boden flammenfarbne Blätterstürze schlagen: da müssen wir nun tragen, was wir uns mußten sagen in diesen welken Tagen.

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 about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

En ces jours fanés, Où tout est proche de la fin, Des hélianthes déchirés par la tempête S'élèvent au-dessus de la sombre clôture. Des nuages courent Et la chute des feuilles pare Le sol de ses couleurs de feu : Maintenant nous devons supporter Ce que nous devons nous dire En ces jours fanés.
