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 17, we are $5,700 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 renovation possible!

Im Zimmer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Herbstsonnenschein.
Der liebe Abend blickt so still herein.
Ein Feuerlein rot
Knistert im Ofenloch und loht.
So, mein Kopf auf deinen Knie'n,
So ist mir gut.
Wenn mein Auge so in deinem ruht,
Wie leise die Minuten zieh'n.

In the chamber

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Autumn sunlight.
The lovely evening peers so quietly in.
A little red fire
crackles in the stove and flares up. 
And with my head upon your knee,
I am contented.
When my eyes rest in yours,
how gently do the minutes pass!
