Mag da draußen Schnee sich türmen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE ITA
Mag da draußen Schnee sich türmen,
Mag es hageln, mag es stürmen,
Klirrend [an mein Fenster]1 schlagen,
Nimmer will ich mich beklagen!
Denn ich trage in der Brust
Liebchens Bild und Frühlingslust.

Сердце ничего не просит
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Пусть себе метель кружится,
Град стучит и буря злится,
Снегом пусть окно заносит,
Сердце ничего не просит;
В нём теперь заключены
Милой блеск и блеск весны.
