Hoe is den winter so cout, so lanc
Language: Dutch (Nederlands) 
Hoe is den winter so cout, so lanc!
Die bloemekens sijn vervrosen.
Och waer ic in mijns vaders lant
Ende haddie mijn liefken bi der hant,
Och sach ic bloeijen de rosen!
 
Ic dronker so gheerne den coele wijn
Ende hoorde die voghelkens singhen!
Ver moet ic hier van der liefster sijn,
Vervrosen sijn alle de bloemekijn:
Wes sal ic nu beghinnen?

Note: Hoffmann von Fallersleben collected this and many other Flemish poems and published them in three volumes titled Horae Belgicae
