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!

Allüberall in Feld und Hain

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Allüberall in Feld und Hain]1
Welch wundersüßes Klingen!     
Waldvögelein, Waldvögelein,
Das muß ein großer Meister sein,
Der euch gelehrt zu singen! 

Bald gaukeln, Schmetterlingen gleich,
Die Lieder auf und nieder,
Bald flüstern sie wie Rohr am Teich,
Bald tönt aus ihnen voll und weich
Des Waldes Rauschen wieder. 

Waldvögelein, Waldvögelein
Mit nimmer müden Schwingen,
Das muß der Meister Frühling sein,
Der euch gelehrt, durch Feld und Hain
So wundersüß zu singen.
