by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)
Translation by Valter Juva (1865 - 1922)

In dem Walde sprießt und grünt es
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
In dem Walde sprießt und grünt es
Fast jüngfräulich lustbeklommen;
Doch die Sonne lacht herunter:
Junger Frühling, sei willkommen!

Nachtigall! auch dich schon hör' ich,
Wie du flötest seligtrübe
Schluchzend langgezogne Töne,
Und dein Lied ist lauter Liebe!

Metsä vihannoi ja silmuu
Language: Finnish (Suomi)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Metsä vihannoi ja silmuu
Riemunahdistuksin kainoin;
Mutta päivä maahan hymyy:
Kevät nuori, – terve, ainoin!

Satakieli, sekin täällä
Onneaan on kaihoisempi;
Pitkään nyyhkii sävelsoinnut,
Ja on laulu lempi, lempi!
