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!

Der Jäger im Walde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Jäger in dem Walde
sich suchet seinen Aufenthalt,
mit Hund und Wehr
wohl hin und her,
ob für ihn nichts zu treffen wär.

Mein Hündelein ist stets bei mir
in diesem grünen Laubgewölb,
mein Hündchen wacht,
mein Herz es lacht,
die Augen gehen hin und her.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE

The hunter in the forest

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

The hunter in the forest
searches for a place to whole up,
with his dog and gun
back and forth,
whether or not a perfect place can be found.

My little hound is always with me
in this green, leafy ardor,
my hound is sharp,
my heart rejoices,
my eyes dart back and forth.
