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 17, we are $5,700 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 renovation possible!

Jede Jahreszeit

Language: German (Deutsch)

Jede Jahreszeit
Hat ihr Freud' und Leid;
Mai ist schön, doch hat er falschen Sinn.
Darum Juni mein
Sollst willkommen sein,
Nun die weißen Blüten sind dahin.

Wenn die Stralen glühn,
Ruht sich's gut im Grün,
[Wo]1 der Vogel pfeift im Walde frei;
Unter'm Schattendach
Denkt die Seele nach,
Wird auch fröhlich und gesund dabei.
