Dear friends, we are turning 20 next year! Two years ago, 0.01% of all visitors made a donation. Last year, it was 0.02%. To all who have donated - a very warm thank you! Your generosity inspires me every day to keep going. Unfortunately, the current situation is not sustainable. Even if only 0.5% of visitors could make a donation, we could continue indefinitely - so please donate today and help keep this resource freely-available to all.    ---Emily Ezust, Founder

Der Sonne entgegen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Sonne entgegen 
In Liebesgluten 
Wandr' ich... o Wonne, 
Wer mäße dein Maß!
Mit Reif bepudert 
Prangen die Wälder,
Die Berge grüßen 
Das blendende Licht.
Vor Eiseskälte 
Knirschen die Schritte,
Der Hauch des Mundes 
Ballt sich zu Dampf...
Ich trage Feuer 
In meinem Herzen,
Mich brennt die Liebe, 
Das schlimme Kind.
Sie schürt die Flamme
Mit hastigen Händen,
Die Kohlen knistern, 
Der Wohlduft quillt,
Der Sonne entgegen 
Im Liebesgluten 
Wandr' ich... o Wonne, 
Wer mäße dein Maß!

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.
