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!

Holub na javoře

Language: Moravian (Moravština)

Letěl holúbek na pole,
aby nazobal své vole.
Jak své volátko nazobal,
pod jaborečkem posedal.

Pod jaborečkem má milá
zelený šátek vyšívá.
Vyšívá na něm vineček,
že ju opustil syneček.

Vyšívá na něm z růže květ,
že ju opustil celý svět,
vyšívá na něm vineček,
že ju opustil syneček.

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the Moravian (Moravština)

Volò un piccione sulla campagna
finchè trovò semi per la sua piccola gola.
Quando poi la golettina fu piena,
volò su un ramo d'acero.

Vicino all'acero siede il mio tesorino
e ricama un fazzolettino verde.
E ci ricama una coroncina,
perchè il suo tesoro l'ha lasciata.

Ci ricama anche una rosellina rossa,
per lei tutto l'amore è morto,
ci ricama una coroncina,
perchè il suo tesoro l'ha lasciata.
Ci ricama anche una rosellina rossa,
per lei tutto l'amore è morto.
