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!

Skolie

Language: German (Deutsch)

  Mädchen entsiegelten,
  Brüder! die Flaschen;
  Auf! die geflügelten
  Freuden zu haschen,
Locken und Becher von Rosen umglüht.
  Auf! eh die moosigen
  Hügel uns winken,
  Wonne von rosigen
  Lippen zu trinken;
Huldigung Allem, was jugendlich blüht!
