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 April 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Schön ist das Fest des Lenzes

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schön ist das Fest des Lenzes,
Doch währt es nur der Tage drei.
Hast du ein Lieb', bekränz' es
Mit Rosen, eh' sie geh'n vorbei!

Hast du ein Glas, kredenz' es,
O Schenk, und singe mir dabei:
Schön ist das Fest des Lenzes,
Doch währt es nur der Tage drei.
