Ich sahe eine Tig'rin
Im dunkeln Haine,
Und doch mit meinen Tränen
Konnt' ich sie zähmen.
Sah auch die harten Steine,
Erweicht vom Fall der Tropfen
Und du, so eine zarte,
Du lachst zu meinem Seufzen
Und bittern Grämen.

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.
