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!

Die linden Lüfte sind erwacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die [linden]1 Lüfte sind erwacht,
Sie säuseln und [weben]2 Tag und Nacht,
Sie [schaffen]3 an allen Enden.
O frischer Duft, o neuer Klang!
Nun, armes Herze, sey nicht bang!
Nun muß sich Alles, [Alles]4 wenden.

Die Welt wird schöner [mit]4 jedem Tag,
Man weiß nicht, was noch werden mag,
Das Blühen will nicht enden.
Es blüht das fernste, tieffste Thal.
Nun, armes Herz, vergiß der Qual!
Nun muß sich Alles, [Alles]4 wenden.

Fede di primavera

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Le dolci aure si destano,
spirano e s'intrecciano giorno e notte,
si agitano dappertutto.
O fresco profumo, o nuovo suono!
Ora, povero cuore, non essere triste!
Ora tutto, tutto deve cambiare.

Il mondo diventa ogni giorno più bello,
non si sa che cosa può ancora nascere,
la fioritura non vuole finire;
fiorisce la valle più remota e profonda:
ora, povero cuore, dimentica la pena!
Ora tutto, tutto deve cambiare.
