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!

Minnelied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie der Quell so lieblich klinget
Und die zarten Blumen küßt,
Wie der Fink im Schatten singet
Und das nahe Lienbchen grüßt!

Wie die Lichter zitternd schweifen
Und das Gras sich grün erfreut,
Wie die Tannen weithin greifen
Und die Linde Blüten streut!

In der Linde süß Gedüfte,
In der Tannen Riesellaut,
In dem Spiel der Sommerlüfte
Glänzet sie als Frühlingsbraut.

Aber Waldton, Vogelsingen,
Duft der Blüten, haltet ein,
Licht, verdunkle, nie gelingen
Kann es euch, ihr gleich zu sein!
