Der Schnee ist zergangen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Schnee ist zergangen,
   Der Winter ist fort, ist fort,
Nun Liebchen, nun laß dein Bangen,
   Ich halte mein Wort.

Der Lenz fliegt geschwinde,
   Ist da wie zur Nacht ein Dieb,
Doch schneller als Frühlingswinde
   Fliegt Liebe zum Lieb.

Und eh' noch der Morgen
   Die Veilchen, die ersten gegrüßt.
Sind all deine bangen Sorgen
   Hinweg schon geküßt.

The snow has melted

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

The snow has melted,
   Winter is gone, is gone,
Now sweetheart, now leave off your trepidation,
   I shall keep my word.
Spring flies rapidly,
   It arrives like a thief at night,
But more quickly than spring-winds
   Love flies to the beloved.
And before the morning
   Has yet greeted the first violets.
All of your anxious worries
   Shall already be kissed away.
