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!

Genug gewandert

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es schwingt in der Sonne sich auf
    Ein Bienchen in guldiger Pracht. -
Bin müde vom irren Lauf,
    Erstarrt von der Kälte der Nacht.

Ein Bienchen in guldiger Pracht,
    In würziger Blumen Reih'n -
Erstarrt von der Kälte der Nacht,
    Begehr' ich nach stärkendem Wein.

In würziger Blumen Reih'n
    Bist, Rose, die herrlichste du. -
Begehr' ich nach stärkendem Wein,
    Wer trinket den Becher mir zu?

Bist, Rose, die herrlichste du,
    Die Sonne der Sterne fürwahr! -
Wer trinket den Becher mir zu
    Aus der rosigen Mädchen Schaar?

Die Sonne der Sterne, fürwahr
    Die Rose entfaltete sich, -
Aus der rosigen Mädchen Schaar
    Umfängt die lieblichste mich.

Die Rose entfaltete sich,
    Das Bienchen wird nicht mehr geseh'n. -
Umfängt die Lieblichste mich,
    Ist's fürder um's Wandern gescheh'n.

Enough wandering

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

In the [light of the] sun,
  A bee soars aloft in gilded splendour.-
I'm tired from my mad walking,
  Grown stiff with the cold of the night.

A bee in gilded splendour,
  Among the spicily-scented rows of flowers -
Grown stiff with the cold of the night,
  I yearn for strengthening wine.

Among the spicily-scented rows of flowers
  You, Rose, are the most magnificent.-
When I yearn for strengthening wine,
  Who will raise the glass to me?

You, Rose, are the most magnificent,
  Truly the sun of the stars! -
Who from among the bevy of rosy maidens
  Will raise the glass to me?

Truly the sun of the stars,
  The rose unfurled itself, -
From among the bevy of rosy maidens
  The loveliest one embraces me.

The rose unfurled itself,
  The bee was seen nevermore.-
If the loveliest one embraces me,
  Then it's all up with future wanderings.
