Ich führt' dich oft spazieren

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich führt' dich oft spazieren
In Wintereinsamkeit,
Kein Laut ließ sich da spüren,
Du schöne, stille Zeit!
 
Lenz ist's nun, Lerchen singen
Im Blauen über mir,
Ich weine still - sie bringen
Mir einen Gruß von dir.

I often took you for a walk

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

I often took you for a walk
In the loneliness of winter,
No sound let itself be heard then,
You beautiful, quiet time!

It is now spring, larks sing
In the blue heavens above me,
I weep quietly - they bring me
A greeting from you.
