Original text and translations

German.png German text

Er ist's
Frühling lässt sein blaues Band
wieder flattern durch die Lüfte,
süsse, wohlbekannte Düfte
streifen ahnungsvoll das Land.

Veilchen träumen schon,
wollen balde kommen.
Horch, von fern ein leiser Harfenton!
Frühling, ja du bist's!
Dich hab' ich vernommen.

English.png English translation

It is he
Spring lets his blue ribbon
Flutter again through the air;
Sweet, familiar fragrances
Lightly touch the land foretellingly.
Violets, already dreaming,
Will come soon.
Listen, in the distance a soft sound of a harp!
Spring, it surely is you!
You have I heard.
