Blume und Duft
In Frühlings Heiligtume,
Wenn dir ein Duft an's Tiefste rührt,
Da suche nicht die Blume,
Der ihn ein Hauch entführt.
Der Duft läßt Ew'ges ahnen,
Von unbegrenztem Leben voll;
Die Blume kann nur mahnen,
Wie schnell sie welken soll.

Notes about green, red, and white dots
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it
and, despite my best efforts, this project has never received public funding. It is
supported financially by roughly 0.013% of our visitors.
So if you found
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
