Im Schnee von Blüthenflocken
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Im Schnee von Blüthenflocken
Da spielt der Morgenwind,
Aus Mai- und Lilienglocken
Da flüstert's [leicht]1 und lind.
 
Da duftet's wie mit Schalle,
Da rauscht es wie in Duft,
Wenn süß die Nachtigalle
Ihr Lieb, ihr Liebstes ruft.
 
Im Schnee von Blütenflocken
Da will ich sitzen gehn,
Und will der Liebsten Locken
Im Winde flattern sehn.
 
Da will ich hell mit Klingen,
Mit lieblichem Gesang
Von Lieb', von Liebe singen
Wie Nachtigallenklang.

In the snow of the blossom petals
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
In the snow of the blossom petals
The morning wind is playing,
From the bells of lily of the valley and lily
There comes a [light]1 and gentle whispering.
 
Scents emerge as if with sounding,
There is a soughing as of scent,
When the nightingale sweetly
Calls to its love, its most beloved.
 
In the snow of the blossom petals
There I wish to go sit,
And wish to see the curls of my beloved
Fluttering in the wind.
 
There with bright ringing,
With lovely melodies
I wish to sing of love, of love,
Like the sound of nightingales.
