Original text and translations

„Vierfach Kleeblatt, selt'ner Fund!
Glückspfand! Holde Feengabe!
Vielgesegnet sei der Grund,
wo ich dich gepflükket habe!"

„Von dem Felde aus dem Klee
will ich mir kein Pfand erwarten,
gibst du mir, du süße Fee,
eins aus deinem Rosengarten."

English.png English translation

"Fourleaf clover, seldom found!
Good luck promise! Gift of fairies!
Blessed ever be the ground
where I found the gift it carries!”

“From the clover field for me
no pledge of luck expected
if to me you’d give, my sweet,
from your garden one collected.
