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!

Lad Vaaren komme

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Lad Vaaren komme, mens den vil,
Med Grønt, der grønnes,
Med tusend Fugles Fløjtespil,
Mens Blomster blomstre
Og Alt det Skjønnes
Fagreste Fagre
Kommer at flagre
Ud ove Enge og ud over Agre,
Vælder i Haver og skjules i Skove,
Vælter sin Duft over Vang, og Vove.
Hvad gjør de mig?
Mit Hjerte er ej Blomst, ej Blad,
Og Vaaren gjør det ikke glad:
Det har sin egen, sære Vaar,
Naar?

Let springtime come

Language: English after the Danish (Dansk)

Let springtime come then, when it will,
with verdure greenest,
with flutelike song
of myriad birds,
when all that blossoms
and all that is freshest, loveliest, fairest
waves and flutters away 
over meadows, away over fields,
budding in gardens and hiding in woodlands,
shedding its fragrance on waters and waves.
Yet not for me! 
My heart is neither leaf nor blossom
and springtime cannot bring me joy:
I must await my own spring. 
When? When?
