Available translation(s): FRE
Veilchen sah ich [halbbeschneit]1
Zwischen Gras und Mose.
Veilchen, thust mir wahrlich leid,
Denk' ich an die Frühlingszeit
Und an manche Rose.
Veilchen aber sang mir zu :
Hoffe du, hoffe du!
Veilchen im tiefen Thal
Findet der Sonnenstrahl.

Je vis une violette à‑demi sous la neige
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Je vis une violette à-demi sous la neige,
Entre herbe et mousse.
Violette, tu me fais vraiment de la peine,
Je pense aux jours de printemps
Et à certaine rose.
Mais la violette me chanta :
« Espère, espère !
Une violette au fond de la vallée
Trouve les rayons du soleil. »
