Frühzeitiger Frühling

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tage der Wonne,
Kommt ihr so bald?
Schenkt mir die Sonne
Hügel und Wald?
 
Reichlicher fließen
Bächlein zumal,
Sind es die Wiesen?
Ist es das Thal?
 
Blauliche Frische!
Himmel und Höh!
Goldene Fische
Wimmeln im See.
 
Buntes Gefieder
Rauschet im Hain;
Himmlische Lieder
Schallen darein.
 
Unter des Grünen
Blühender Kraft,
Naschen die Bienen
Summend am Saft.
 
Leise Bewegung
Bebt in der Luft,
Reizende Regung
Schläfernder Duft.
 
Mächtiger rühret
Bald sich ein Hauch,
Doch er verlieret
Gleich sich im Strauch.
 
Aber zum Busen
Kehrt er zurück,
Helfet, ihr Musen,
Tragen das Glück!
 
Saget seit gestern
Wie mir geschah?
Liebliche Schwestern,
Liebchen ist da!

Vroege lente

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Dagen van weelde,
Kom je zo gauw?
Toont mij de zon al
Heel de landouw?
 
Rijk’lijker stromen
Beekjes vooral;
Zijn het de weiden,
Is het het dal?
 
Hemel en hoogten,
Blauwig zo teer!
Goudlichte vissen
Weemlen in ’t meer.
 
Kleurig gefladder
Ruist in het bos;
Hemelse zangen
Komen daar los.
 
Diep in het groene,
Als aan een tap,
Snoepen de bijen
Zoemend van ‘t sap.
 
Zachte beweging
Beeft in de lucht,
Prikk’lende speling,
Koest’rende zucht.
 
Machtiger roert zich
Weldra een bries,
Doch in de struiken
Lijdt hij verlies.
 
Maar naar het hart terug
Maakt hij een ruk,
Help mij, o Muzen,
Dragen ’t geluk!
 
Zeg wat sinds gist’ren
Ik dan wel vier!
Lieflijke zusters,
Liefje is hier!
