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!

Ich zieh' dahin!

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

Ich zieh' dahin!
Ade, mein fröhlich Frankenland,
Wo ich die liebste Heimath fand,
Du meiner Kindheit Pflegerin.
Ade, du Land, du schöne Zeit --
Mich trennt das Boot vom Glück so weit!
Doch trägt's die Hälfte nur von mir:
Ein Theil für immer bleibet dein,
Mein fröhlich Land, der sage dir,
Des Andern eingedenk zu sein! --

Jäähyväiset Ranskalle

Language: Finnish (Suomi) after the German (Deutsch)

Minä muutan pois, pois!
Hyvästi, iloinen Ranskani,
jossa löysin rakkaimman isänmaani,
lapsuuteni hoitaja!
Hyvästi, maa, hyvästi ihana aika.
Laiva vie minut kauas onnesta!
Mutta se kantaa mukanaan vain puolikastani;
osa minusta jää ikuisesti omaksesi,
iloinen maani, se puolisko kehoittakoon
sinua muistamaan sitä, joka on poissa! Hyvästi!
