Rote Rosenknospen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Rote Rosenknospen
künden schon des Lenzes Triebe.
Rosenrote Wangen
Deuten Mädchens erste Liebe.
Kleiner roter Vogel,
Flieg herab zur roten Rose!
Bursche geht zum ros'gen
Mädchen kosen.

Red rosebuds herald the arrival of Spring

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Red rosebuds 
 herald the arrival of Spring.
 Rose-red cheeks
 mean a maiden's first love.
 Little red bird,
 fly off to the red rose!
 The lad is going to the rosy
 maiden to woo her!
