Ich blicke hinab in die Gasse

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich blicke hinab in die Gasse,
Dort drüben hat sie gewohnt;
Das öde, verlassene Fenster,
Wie hell bescheint's der Mond.

Es gibt so viel zu beleuchten;
O holde Strahlen des Lichts,
Was [webt]1 ihr denn gespenstisch
Um jene Stätte des Nichts!

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 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.

I also have a wishlist at Amazon.ca.
