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!

In dem Walde sprießt und grünt es

Language: German (Deutsch)

In dem Walde sprießt und grünt es
Fast jüngfräulich lustbeklommen;
Doch die Sonne lacht herunter:
Junger Frühling, sei willkommen!

Nachtigall! auch dich schon hör' ich,
Wie du flötest seligtrübe
Schluchzend langgezogne Töne,
Und dein Lied ist lauter Liebe!

Spring song

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

In the forest it blooms and greens
almost virginally full of desire;
yet the sun laughs down:
young Spring, welcome!

Nightingale, I already hear
how you sing, blissfully sad,
long, sobbing tones,
and your song is pure love!
