Ich muß hinaus, ich muß zu Dir,
Ich muß es selbst Dir sagen:
Du bist mein Frühling, Du nur mir
In diesen lichten Tagen.

Ich will die Rosen nicht mehr sehn,
Nicht mehr die grünen Matten;
Ich will nicht mehr zu Walde gehn
Nach Duft und Klang und Schatten.

Ich will nicht mehr der Lüfte Zug,
Nicht mehr der Wellen Rauschen,
Ich will nicht mehr der Vögel Flug
Und ihrem Liede lauschen. --

Ich will hinaus, ich will zu Dir,
Ich will es selbst Dir sagen:
Du bist mein Frühling, Du nur mir
In diesen lichten Tagen!

Love and Spring
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
I must get out, I must get to you,
I must tell it to you myself:
You are my Spring, only you
 In these bright days.
 I no longer wish to see the roses
nor the green meadow;
I no longer to want to go to the forest
for its scents and sounds and shadows.
I no longer want the blowing air,
nor the rushing waves,
I no longer want to listen to
the birds and their songs.
I want to get out, I want to get to you,
I want to tell it to you myself:
You are my Spring, only you
in these bright days.
