Weiß wie Lilien, reine Kerzen
Weiß wie Lilien, reine Kerzen,
Sternen gleich, bescheidner Beugung,
Leuchtet aus dem Mittelherzen,
Rot gesäumt, die Glut der Neigung.
So frühzeitige Narzissen
Blühen reihenweis im Garten.
Mögen wohl die Guten wissen,
Wen sie so spaliert erwarten.

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.
