Original text and translations

German.png German text

Saatengrün, Veilchenduft,
Lerchenwirbel, Amselschlag,
Sonnenregen, linde Luft!

Wenn ich solche Wörte singe,
braucht es dann noch grosser Dinge,
dich zu preisen, Frühlingstag?
(Frühlingslieder, No. 5)

English.png English translation

Sprouting-green, violet-scent,
Lark-warble, Thrush-song,
Raining-sun, gentle breeze!

Having sung such words,
is such a lot still needed
for me to praise you, Springtime day?

Translation by Richard Mix
