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!

En blomma stod vid vägen

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

En blomma stod vid vägen
Af sommarns fjäril kysst,
Som troget blef när flickan
Bröt henne af så tyst.
Ty alla mina vänner äro edra.

Och flickan satte fjäriln
Hos fogeln i en bur,
Och genast gjorde fogeln
För fjäriln sin kur.
Ty alla mina vänner äro edra.

Hvit klädning fick så fjäriln,
Och så små hvita skor,
Och han blef gift med fogeln.
Visst var den äran stor.
Ty alla mina vänner äro edra.

Men skild stod arma blomman
Från bröllop och kalas,
Och dog af sorg, och vissnade
Allena i sitt glas,
Sen alla hennes vänner blifvit andras.

Tien varrella kasvoi kukka

Language: Finnish (Suomi) after the Swedish (Svenska)

Tien varrella kasvoi kukka.
Sitä suuteli kesän perhonen,
joka pysyi uskollisena kukalle,
kun tyttö sen varovasti taittoi.
Sillä kaikki ystäväni ovat teidänkin ystäviänne.

Ja tyttö pani perhosen
linnun kanssa samaan häkkiin,
ja heti alkoi lintu
kosiskella perhosta.
Sillä kaikki ystäväni ovat teidänkin ystäviänne.

Perhonen sai valkean leningin
ja pikkiriikkiset valkoiset kengät,
ja se meni naimisiin linnun kanssa.
Sepä oli sille suuri kunnia.
Sillä kaikki ystäväni ovat teidänkin ystäviänne.

Mutta kukka-parka jäi sivuun
häistä ja niiden juhlinnasta
ja se kuoli surusta kuihtuneena
maljakossaan aivan yksin,
kun kaikista sen ystävistä oli tullut muiden ystäviä.
