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 May 6, we are $2,380 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 to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Le faune

Language: French (Français)

Un vieux faune de terre cuite
Rit au centre des boulingrins,
Présageant sans doute une suite
Mauvaise à ces instants sereins

Qui m'ont conduit et t'ont conduite,
-- Mélancoliques pèlerins, --
Jusqu'à cette heure dont la fuite
Tournoie au son des tambourins.

Na sošku fauna v parku

Language: Czech (Čeština) after the French (Français)

Faun starý z hlíny pálené
se směje v středu trávníků,
snad věstí štěstí zkalené
veselých našich podniků,

Jež svedly sem nás vzdálené,
nás truchlivých dvé poutníků,
ku lásky chvilce ztracené,
jež mře v tamburín povyku.
