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!

Potessi diventare un uccellino!

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Potessi diventare un uccellino!
Avessi l' ale e potessi volare! --
Vorrei volare in mezzo al bel giardino
Dove sta lo mio amore a lavorare.
E gli vorrei volare intorno intorno,
E ci vorrei restar la notte e il giorno.

Si je pouvais être un oiseau !

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Si je pouvais être un oiseau !
J'aurais des ailes et je pourrais voler !
Je voudrais voler au milieu du jardin
Où se tient mon amour au travail.  (ruio -> mio)
Et je voudrais voler tout autour, tout autour,
Et je voudrais y rester la nuit et le jour.
