Dear friends, we are turning 20 next year! Two years ago, 0.01% of all visitors made a donation. Last year, it was 0.02%. To all who have donated - a very warm thank you! Your generosity inspires me every day to keep going. Unfortunately, the current situation is not sustainable. Even if only 0.5% of visitors could make a donation, we could continue indefinitely - so please donate today and help keep this resource freely-available to all.    ---Emily Ezust, Founder

Piosenka litewska

Language: Polish (Polszczyzna)

Bardzo raniuchno wschodziło słoneczko,
Mama przy szklannym okienku siedziała,
"Skąd że to", pyta, "powracasz córeczko?
Gdzieś twój wianeczek na głowie zmaczała?"
"Kto tak raniuchno musi wodę nosić,
Nie dziw, że może swój wianeczek zrosić."
"Ej, zmyślasz, dziecię! Ej, zmyślasz, dziecię!
Tyś zapewne, tyś zapewne w pole,
Z twoim młodzianem gawędzić pobiegła."
"Prawda, prawda, Matusiu, prawdę wyznać wolę,
Mojegom w polu młodziana spostrzegła,
Kilka chwil tylko zeszło na rozmowie,
Tym czasem wianek zrosił się na głowie."

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
