Karl-Gottfried Nadler: “Fröhlich Palz, Gott erhalts: Poems in Palatinate dialect” (1847)



"Peaks, Poles and Paragraphs" is the title of this site. The splinters shown here are difficult to classify under this
heading at first glance. I will try:
They are peaks in the sense of recognizing and becoming aware of my own dialect and thus my own origin - 
they are poles marking the path back to my home in Heidelberg, which I exchanged for a job in the west of Frankfurt
50 years ago; they show me the paragraphs denominating the limitations in which I have remained trapped,
in spite of my worldwide activities.

Following Nadler's great example, here are a few humble samples, all of them published or being published in  in 
"Hierzuland - Das Regio-Magazin von Rhein, Neckar & Main":
