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 May 6, we are $2,380 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 overhaul possible!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Gedenk ich noch der Frühlingsnächte
Vor manchem, manchem Jahr,
Wie wir zusammen im Garten standen
Und unten über den Landen
Alles so still noch war.

Wie wir standen in Gedanken,
Bis eine Morgenglocke erwacht' -
Das alles ist lange vergangen;
Aber die Glocken, die da klangen,
Hör ich noch oft bei Nacht.

Crépuscule du matin

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

Je pense encore aux nuits de printemps
D'il y a de nombreuses, nombreuses années,
Nous étions tous deux dans le jardin,
Et sur les terres en-bas
Tout était encore si calme.

Nous étions dans nos pensées
Jusqu'à ce qu'une cloche matinale nous réveille --
Tout cela est passé depuis longtemps ;
Mais les cloches qui alors sonnaient,
Je les entends encore souvent pendant la nuit.
