Wo ich bin, mich rings umdunkelt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wo ich bin, mich rings umdunkelt
Finsterniß so dumpf und dicht,
Seit mir nicht mehr leuchtend funkelt,
Liebste, Deiner Augen Licht.

[Mir]1 erloschen ist der süßen
Liebessterne goldne Pracht.
Abgrund gähnt zu meinen Füßen.
Nimm mich auf, uralte Nacht.

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.
