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!

Ewig trägt im Mutterschoße

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ewig trägt im Mutterschoße, 
Süße Königin der Flur,
Dich und mich die stille, große,
Allbelebende Natur.

Röschen! unser Schmuck veraltet,
Sturm entblättert dich und mich,
Doch der ew'ge Keim entfaltet
Bald zu neuer Blüthe sich!

Translation(s): ENG FRE

About the headline (FAQ)

Confirmed with Wolff's Poetischer Hausschatz des deutschen Volkes: Ein Buch für Schule und Haus, erneuert von Carl Ostrogge, Leipzig, Verlag von Otto Wigand, 1874, pages 150-151.

Modernized spelling would change "Blüthe" to "Blüte".

Éternellement portés dans le sein...

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

Éternellement portés dans le sein maternel,
Douce reine des champs,
Toi et moi, par la calme, grande
Nature qui vivifie tout.

Petite rose ! notre parure vieillit,
La tempête arrache les pétales à toi et à moi,
Mais la graine éternelle se sèmera 
Bientôt en une nouvelle floraison !
