There rises up on a pair of golden wings a wondrous bird: WALTHER At the quiet hearth in winter time, when castle and courtyard were snowed up, I often read in an old book left to me by my ancestor how once Spring so sweetly laughed, and how it then soon awoke anew.

Make shoes for the poor meisstersinger
