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!

Lean out of the window

Language: English

Lean out of the window,
  Goldenhair,
I heard you singing
  A merry air.

My book is closed;
  I read no more,
Watching the fire dance
  On the floor.

I have left my book,
  I have left my room,
For I heard you singing
  Through the gloom,

Singing and singing
  A merry air.
Lean out of the window,
  Goldenhair.

Złocisty mi świeci

Language: Polish (Polski) after the English

Złocisty mi świeci
w oknie twój włos
i słyszę z daleka
radosny głos.

Odkładam książkę,
nie czytam już,
zły ze mnie w domu 
ognia stróż.

Moja k siążko, precz!
Mój pospiesza krok,
gdzie twa pieśn' przebija
nocy mrok.

S'piewa i śpiewa
radosny głos.
O, ukaż mi w oknie
złoty twój włos!
