Op 'n stralende zomermorgen
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Op 'n stralende zomermorgen
Loop 'k in de tuin maar wat voort.
'k Hoor fluist'ren en praten de bloemen,
Ik echter zeg geen woord1.
 
'k Hoor fluist'ren en praten de bloemen,
Ze zien gevoelvol mij aan:
"Neem onze zuster niets kwalijk,
Jij treurige, bleke man."
