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!

Bumerang

Language: German (Deutsch)

War einmal ein Bumerang;
War ein weniges zu lang.
Bumerang flog ein Stück,
Aber kam nicht mehr zurück.
Publikum - noch stundenlang -
Wartete auf Bumerang.

There was once a boomerang

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

There was once a boomerang
That was a little too long.
The boomerang flew off
But it didn't come back.
The public, for hours,
Waited for that boomerang.
