Marssnön
Language: Swedish (Svenska) 
Available translation(s): FIN GER
Den svala snön därute faller
och täcker marken mer och mer,
de lägga sig de vita stjärnor 
i varv på varv längs jorden ner. 

Håll slutet än, o vår! ditt öga,
sov gott i blid och vänlig snö -
dess mäktigare skall du blomma,
dess rikare skall sen du dö.
