You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Kornblumen flecht' ich dir zum Kranz

Language: German (Deutsch)

Kornblumen flecht' ich dir zum Kranz
Ins blonde Lockenhaar.
Wie leuchtet doch der blaue Glanz
Auf goldnem Grund so klar!

Der blaue Kranz ist meine Lust;
Er sagt mir stets auf's neu,
Wohl keine sei in tiefster Brust
Wie du, mein Kind, so treu.

Auch mahnt sein Himmelblau zugleich
Mich heimlich süßer Art,
Daß mir ein ganzes Himmelreich
In deiner Liebe ward.

Je tresse une couronne de bleuets

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Je tresse une couronne de bleuets
Dans tes cheveux aux boucles blondes.
Comme cette couleur bleue brille
Sur un fond d'or si clair !

Cette couronne bleue est ma joie
Elle me rappelle toujours
Que personne au plus profond de mon cœur
N'est aussi fidèle que toi mon enfant.

En même temps ce bleu ciel me rappelle
De douce et secrète manière
Que dans ton amour
J'ai trouvé tout un paradis.
