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!

Ihr Matten, lebt wohl

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ihr Matten, lebt wohl,
Ihr sonnigen Weiden!
Der Senne muß scheiden,
Der Sommer ist hin.

Wir fahren zu Berg, wir kommen wieder,
Wenn der Kuckuck ruft, wenn erwachen die Lieder,
Wenn mit Blumen die Erde sich kleidet neu,
Wenn die Brünnlein fließen im lieblichen Mai.

Ihr Matten, lebt wohl,
Ihr sonnigen Weiden!
Der Senne muß scheiden,
Der Sommer ist hin.

You meadows, farewell, you sunny pasturelands!

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 You meadows, farewell,
 you sunny pasturelands!
 The herdsman must leave,
 for summer is past.
 
 We travel to the mountain and return
 when the cuckoo calls, when songs awaken,
 when the earth adorns itself anew with flowers,
 when the springs flow in lovely May.
 
 You meadows, farewell,
 you sunny pasturelands!
 The herdsman must leave,
 for summer is past.
