Language: German

Der Frühling strahlt durch Feld und Au, 
die Luft ist so warm und der Himmel so blau;
die Vöglein singen in Feld und Hain: 
o mögt es doch immer so wonig sein!  

Mai-blumen blühen am klaren Quell 
und spiegeln sich frei in der silbernen Well,
sie nicken und blacken so freundlich hinein: 
O mögt es doch immer so wonig sein! 

Einsam versteckt im grünen Moos, 
vom Thau benetzt in der Mutter Schooss, 
da duften die Veilchen im Sonnenschein: 
O mögt es doch immer so wonig sein! 

Der Käfer schwirret im Sonnenstrahl; 
es gleichet die Flur einem lustigen Saal; 
drin spielen die Kinder in munteren Reih'n: 
O mögt es doch immer so wonig sein!
