by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)

In dem Walde sprießt und grünt es
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
In dem Walde sprießt und grünt es
Fast jüngfräulich lustbeklommen;
Doch die Sonne lacht herunter:
Junger Frühling, sei willkommen!

Nachtigall! auch dich schon hör' ich,
Wie du flötest seligtrübe
Schluchzend langgezogne Töne,
Und dein Lied ist lauter Liebe!
