Spring flowers
Language: English 
I
 Softly the May time wakes the daisies
 Kissing them with a kiss that warms.

 Fills with a song the forest mazes
 Clasps the earth in her tender arms

 On the verdant mountain trembles
 Softly the light of her first shy smile.

 To my love that Springtime resembles
 Listen belov'd a little while.

 To my love that Springtime resembles
 Listen my love a little while.
 
II
 Softly it blooms with wondrous blossoms
 All the colors of thy fair eyes.

 Softly it sings in forest bowers
 Sweet a name as one could desire

 Show'rs it has to grief belonging
 Sunshine that belongs to mirth.

 Tender arms with infinite longing
 To clasp thee as May clasps the earth.

 Tender arms with infinite longing
 To clasp thee as May clasps the earth.
