by Klaus Groth (1819 - 1899)

Hell int Finster
Language: Plattdeutsch 
Hell int Finster schint de Sünn,
Schint bet deep int Hart herin;
All wat kold is, dump un weh,
Daut se weg, as Is un Snee.

Winter weent sin blanksten Thran,
Vorjahrtsathen weiht mi an,
Kinnerfreid so frisch as Dau
Treckt mi dor vunt Himmelsblau.

Noch is Tid! o kamt man in,
Himmelblau un Vorjahrssünn!
Lacht noch eenmal warm un blid
Deep int Hart! o noch ist Tid!
