Frühlingstag
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Es ist so still, als wär' es Schlafenszeit,
Als wär' entschlummert Not und Leid,
Gestorben Angst und Qual.
Kein Hauch bewegt die Bäume,
Wie unschuldsvolle Kinderträume
Ziehn leis die Wölklein übers Tal.

Spring day
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 It is so quiet, as if it were time to sleep,
 as if suffering and pain were slumbering,
 and as if fear and misery have died.
 Not a breath stirs the trees;
 like the innocent dreams of children,
 the little clouds float gently over the valley.
