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 April 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Zaczaruj mnie w jeziora jasną głąb
I bądź mi słońcem igrającym z falą. 

Zaczaruj mnie w bijące z jaru źródło
I bądź usmiechem kwiatu dla mej toni. 

Zaczaruj mnie w zielony cierń gałązki
I bądź mi blaskiem purpurowym róźy. 

Zaczaruj mnie w ziarenko posród piasku
I bądź tym ptaszkiem co je tuż zdziobie!

Par un charme, change-moi en un lac clair et profond
et toi en soleil jouant au-dessus des vagues.

Par un charme, change-moi en une source qui frappe la vallée
et toi en une fleur souriant au bruit.

Par un charme, change-moi en une verte épine sur un buisson
et toi en l'éclat d'une rose cramoisie.

Par un charme, change-moi en un graine dans un tas de sable
et toi en un oiseau qui vite la picore !
