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 April 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Silkesko over gylden Læst

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Silkesko over gylden Læst!
Jeg har mig en Jomfru fæst'!
Jeg har mig en dejlig Jomfru fæst'!
Ingen er som hun paa Guds sollyse Jord,
Ikke en eneste en.
Som Himlen i Syd og som Sneen i Nord
Er hun ren.
Men der er Jorderigs Fryd i min Himmel,
Og Flammer der staar af min Sne.
Ingen Sommers Rose er rødere,
End hendes Øje er sort . . .

Seidenschuh über Leisten von Gold

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Danish (Dansk)

Seidenschuh' über Leisten von Gold!
Eine Jungfrau ist mir hold!
Eine schöne Jungfrau ist mir hold!
Es kann in Gottes sonnenfroher Welt ihr gleich
Nicht eine sein.
Sie ist wie der Himmel im Süd, der Schnee in Frostes Reich
So rein.
Aber in meinem Himmel ist irdische Freude,
Und Flammen schlagen aus meinem Schnee.
Keine Sommerrose ist röter,
Als ihr Auge schwarz ist . . . .
