Der edle Mai ist kommen,
Das hab ich wahrgenommen:
Die Blümlein zart in voller Blüte stehn,
Gras, Laub und Bäume sind lieblich anzusehn.

Die Zeit des edlen Maien
Tut alle Welt erfreuen:
Da hört man die Waldvöglein lieblich singen,
Daß es in den Bergen und Talen tut klingen.

Die Maizeit ich preise
Gleich einem Paradeise:
Da können sich im Grünen fein ergetzen
Zwei junge Lieblein, und mit einander schwätzen.

Note: could be the same as this text ?
