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!

Le héron blanc

Language: French (Français) after the Chinese (中文)

Ce grand flocon de neige était un héron,
qui vient de se poser sur le lac bleu.
Immobile á l'extrémité d'un banc de sable,
le héron blanc regarde l'Hiver.

The white heron

Language: English after the French (Français)

The white and heavy snowflake was like a heron,
which has but just alighted on the lake.
Motionless on the sandbank's edge
The snowwhite heron dreamily gazes on the white snow.
