Mit unsern [Fischern]1 war ein Kind gekommen
Von Frauenwörth.
Das hab' ich spielend auf mein Knie genommen
Und frug betört:

"Wer ist die lieblichste der frommen Frauen,
Die du gewahrt?"
Da schlug es auf den vollen Blick, den blauen:
"Frau Irmingard!" - -

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 less than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
