Der Tisch ist gedecket und alles bereit
genießt, was die Güte des Schöpfers uns beut´
O sehet und schmecket, wie freundlich Er ist
Ach niemals und nirgends er unser vergißt

Er deckt auch den Vöglein und Tieren den Tisch
es sprudelt für alle die Quelle so frisch
O sehet und schmecket wie freundlich er ist
auch selber des Würmleins er nimmer vergißt

~ aus Fliedners Liederbuch [1842]




About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
