When the linden blooms
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
When the linden blooms
The young goslings are there.
Then when I watch over the young goslings,
my darling is there.

Then when I kiss my darling
the goslings go in [among] the seeds.
If the farmer were to [learn] of it,
dear darling, leave the kissing be.
