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!

Im Frühling auf grünem Hügel

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im Frühling auf grünem Hügel,
Da sassen viel Engelein.
Die putzten sich ihre Flügel
Und spielten im Sonnenschein.

Da kamen Störche gezogen
Und jeder sich eines nahm
Und ist damit fortgeflogen
Bis daß er zu Menschen kam.

Und wo er anklopfte bescheiden,
Der kluge Adolar,
Da war das Haus voller Freuden,
So geht es noch alle Jahr.

Les Angelots et les Cigongnes

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

On dit que sur l'herbe nouvelle
S'amusaient à saute mouton
Pour se dégourdir les ailes
Des chérubins rose et blonds.

C'est par là que s'égarèrent
Des cigognes, nous dit-on,
Qui dans leur bec emportèrent
Les chérubins rose et blonds.

Et depuis sur cette terre
Elles portent le bonher, dit-on,
Pourvoyant palais et chaumières
De chérubins rose et blonds.
