Available translation(s): GER ITA
The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hill-side's dew-pearl'd;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in His heaven --
All's right with the world!

L'anno in primavera
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the English 
L'anno in primavera, 
E il giorno di al mattino; 
Mattina di alle sette; 
Lato della collina coperto di perle di rugiada;
L'allodola è sulla fascia;
La lumaca di su la spina;
Dio nel suo cielo –
Tutto è di destra  con il mondo!
