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!

Pastorale

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

Un jour de printemps,
Tout le long d'un verger
Colin va chantant,
Pour ses maux soulager :
Ma bergère, ma bergère,
tra la la la la la la la la
Ma bergère, laisse-moi 
Prendre un tendre baiser !

La belle, à l'instant
Répond à son berger:
»Tu veux, en chantant
Un baiser dérober?...
Non Colin, non Colin,
Tra la la la la la la la la
Tu voudrais, en chantant 
Prendre un tendre baiser
Non, Colin, ne le prends pas,
Je vais te le donner.
