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!

Liebe Schwalbe, kleine Schwalbe

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

Liebe Schwalbe, kleine Schwalbe,
Du fliegst auf und singst so früh,
Streuest durch die Himmelsbläue
Deine süße Melodie.

Die da schlafen noch am Morgen,
Alle Liebenden in Ruh',
Mit dem zwitschernden Gesange
Die Versunk'nen weckest du.

Auf! nun auf! ihr Liebesschläfer,
Weil die Morgenschwalbe rief:
Denn die Nacht wird den betrügen,
Der den hellen Tag verschlief.

Chère hirondelle

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Chère hirondelle, petite hirondelle,
Tu voles haut et tu chantes si tôt,
Semant à travers le bleu du ciel
Ta douce mélodie.

Ceux qui dorment encore dans le matin,
Tous les amants qui se reposent,
Avec le gazouillis de tes chants
Tu les réveilles de leur sommeil.

Debout ! debout maintenant ! amants endormis,
Ainsi l'hirondelle appelle :
Car la nuit trompera
Celui qui dort pendant le jour brillant.
