Es stehen unbeweglich

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es stehen unbeweglich
die Sterne in ihrer Höh',
viel tausend Jahr, und schauen
sich an mit Liebesweh.

Sie sprechen eine Sprache,
die ist so reich, so schön;
doch keiner der Philologen
kann diese Sprache verstehn.

Ich aber hab sie gelernet,
und ich vergesse sie nicht;
mir diente als Grammatik
der Herzallerliebsten Gesicht.

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.
