Seht, wie zum Haselbusche dort die...

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Seht, wie zum Haselbusche dort die rasche Jugend eilt!
 An jedem Aste schwinget sich der Kleinen lose Schar,
 und der bewegten Staud' entstürzt gleich Hagelschau'r die lock're Frucht.

 Hier klimmt der junge Bau'r, den hohen Stamm entlang,
 die Leiter flink hinauf. Vom Wipfel, der ihn deckt,
 sieht er sein Liebchen nah'n, und ihrem Tritt entgegen,
 fliegt dann im trauten Scherze die runde Nuß herab.

 Im Garten steh'n um jeden Baum die Mädchen groß und klein,
 dem Obste, das sie klauben, an frischer Farbe gleich.

Regardez comme vers le noisetier la jeunesse rapide se dépêche !

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

 Regardez comme vers le noisetier la jeunesse rapide se dépêche !
 À chaque branche s'agite la troupe déchaînée  des petits,
 Et des arbustes secoués jaillissent comme une averse de grêle les fruits légers.

 Ici le jeune paysan grimpe au tronc élevé
 Prestement sur l'échelle. De la cime qui le cache,
 Il voit sa chérie s'approcher et à ses pieds
 Il lance alors une noix ronde par gentille plaisanterie.

 Dans le jardin se tiennent autour des arbres les jeunes filles grandes et petites,
 Les fruits qu'elles trient ont des couleurs aussi fraîches qu'elles.
