Damunt el tossal

Language: Catalan (Català) after the Swiss German (Schwizerdütsch)

Damunt el tossal
m’he assegut
i els ocells
he contemplat;
ells han cantat
han saltironat,
han fet
llurs nius.

En un jardí
he restat
i les abelles
he contemplat;
elles han brunzit,
han bugonat,
han bastit
un rusc.

A través del prat
he caminat
per veure
els ocells de l’estiu;
ells han menjat,
han volat,
i tot ho han fet
tan formosament.

I llavors ha vingut 
el Hansel,
i semblava
molt content,
ell es movia
i reia encara més,
i feia
també com ells.
