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

1. Necklace of love [

]

Language: English

Authorship


No rubies of red for my lady,
No jewel that glitters and charms,
But the light of the skies, in a little one's eyes,
And a necklace of two little arms.

Of two little arms that are clinging
(Oh ne'er was a necklace like this!),
And the wealth o' the world, and love's sweetness impearled,
In the joy of a little one's kiss.

A necklace of love for my lady,
That was linked by the angels above.
No other but this and a tender, sweet kiss
That sealeth a little one's love.

Language: English

Authorship


I sing to my love, the rose,
With all my soul and heart,
For there's naught so sweet in all the world,
As to love, to love, to love.

I sing to my love, the rose,
And the rose sings back to me,
The sweetest song that e'er will be:
"For I love, I love, I love."

I sing to my love, the rose,
As I gaze in her deep red heart,
For her heart is free for all to see,
With its love, its love, its love.

I sing to my love, the rose,
With love for the theme of my song,
For I love the rose and the rose loves me,
So we love, we love, we love.

I sing to my love, the rose,
With all my soul and heart,
For there's naught so sweet in all the world,
As to love, to love, to love.

I sing to my love, the rose,
And the rose sings back to me,
The sweetest song that e'er will be:
"For I love, I love, I love."

La lune blanche 
Luit dans les bois ;
De chaque branche 
Part une voix 
Sous la ramée...

Ô bien aimée.

L'étang reflète,
Profond miroir,
La silhouette
Du saule noir
Où le vent pleure...

Rêvons, c'est l'heure.

Un vaste et tendre
Apaisement
Semble descendre
Du firmament
Que l'astre irise...

C'est l'heure exquise.

Wenn man an dir Verrat geübt,
Sei du um so treuer;
Und ist deine Seele zu Tode betrübt,
So greife zur Leier.

Die Saiten klingen! Ein Heldenlied,
Voll Flammen und Gluten!
Da schmilzt der Zorn, und dein Gemüt
Wird süß verbluten.

«Augen, sterblich schöne Sterne!»
Also mag das Liedchen klingen,
Das ich weiland in Toskana
An dem Meere hörte singen.

Eine kleine Dirne sang es,
Die am Meere Netze flickte;
Sah mich an, bis ich die Lippen
An ihr rotes Mündchen drückte.

An das Lied, an Meer und Netze
Hab ich wieder denken müssen,
Als ich dich zuerst erblickte -
Doch nun muß ich dich auch küssen.
