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 bin klein und hab' noch nicht zehn...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Ich bin klein und hab' noch nicht zehn Jahre, 
Bin geschrieben schon ins Buch der Liebe.
Nahmen mir das Kleid, das schöne, klare, 
Gaben ein braun' Kleid mir, gar zu trübe,
Dunkles Kleidchen, Gürtelchen von Silber.
So wie meine, gibt's mehr keine Liebe, 
Wären gleich von ihr viel hundert Arten.
Dunkles Kleidchen, Gürtelchen von Silber;
So wie meine, gibt's mehr keine Liebe, 
Wenn von ihr gleich [tausend]1 Arten wären.
