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!

Stille, du elskede Kvinde!

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Stille, du elskede Kvinde!
Tyst maa vi træde, vi to.
Der sover en Sang her inde
I Skovens natlige Ro.
 
Stille er Vover og Vinde,
Tavs er hver Sangfuglemund,
Tiende Kilderne rinde
Blankt over mossede Bund.
 
Maanestraalerne spille
Tyst mellem Bøgene frem,
Langs ad Stierne stille
Blunder en lyslig Bræm.
 
Sølvskyen selv der oppe
Hviler paa Vingen bred,
Højt over Træernes Toppe
Skuer den lyttende ned.
 
Stille er Vover og Vinde,
Tyst maa vi træde, vi to.
Der sover en Sang her inde
I Skovens natlige Ro.

Landscape

Language: English after the Danish (Dansk)

Hush, you beloved woman!
silently we must step, we two.
There sleeps a song inside
the forest's nighttime rest.

Quiet are waves and wind,
silent is the mouth of every little bird 
springs, keeping silent, run 
shiny over the mossy floor.

Moonbeams spill down
silently between the waves,
along the quiet paths 
a bright edge [of moonbeam] flashes [or: slumbers].

The silver cloud itself up there
rests on the wide wing, 
high above the treetops
looks down upon the one listening. 

Quiet are waves and wind,
silently we must step, we two.
There sleeps a song inside 
the forest's nighttime rest.
