Klingt im Wind ein Wiegenlied,
Sonne warm herniedersieht,
Seine Ähren senkt das Korn,
Rote Beere schwillt am Dorn,
Schwer von Segen ist die Flur --
Junge Frau, was sinnst du nur?

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

When a lullaby sounds in the wind,
[When] the sun looks down with warmth,
[When] the wheat sinks its ears,
[When] red berries swell upon the thorn,
[When] the meadow is heavy with blessings --
Young woman, whatever are you pondering then?
