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!

Es liegt der heiße Sommer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es liegt der heiße Sommer
Auf deinen Wängelein;
Es liegt der Winter, der kalte,
In deinem Herzchen klein.

Das wird sich bei dir ändern,
Du Vielgeliebte mein!
Der Winter wird auf den Wangen,
Der Sommer im Herzen sein.

Sur ta joue en fleurs, ma mignonne

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Sur ta joue en fleurs, ma mignonne,
L'été brillant met sa splendeur,
Et dans ton petit cœur frissonne
Le morne hiver en sa froideur.

Mais vienne le temps qui se joue
De tout décor, et, froid moqueur,
Il mettra l'hiver sur ta joue
Et l'été brûlant dans ton cœur.
