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!

Mein Wagen rollet langsam

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Wagen rollet langsam
Durch lustiges Waldesgrün,
Durch blumige Taler, die zaubrisch
Im Sonnenglanze blühn.

Ich sitze und sinne und träume,
Und denk' an die Liebste mein;
Da grüßen drei Schattengestalten
Kopfnickend zum Wagen herein.

Sie hüpfen und schneiden Gesichter,
So spöttisch und doch so scheu,
Und quirlen wie Nebel zusammen,
Und kichern und huschen vorbei.

Trottant en léger véhicule

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

Trottant en léger véhicule,
Par l'ombre du bois reverdi.
Par vaux, tout en fleurs je circule
Dans l'or enchanté de midi.

Aux bras des plus tendres images
Se berce en rêvant mon amour :
Voilà trois burlesques visages
Qui viennent me dire bonjour.

Ils sautent, me font la grimace,
Risquant leur timide brio.
Et tel qu'un brouillard qui s'efface
S'esquive en pouffant leur trio.
