Summer is gone with all its roses,
Its sun and perfumes and sweet flowers,
Its warm air and refreshing showers:
And even Autumn closes.

Yea, Autumn's chilly self is going,
And winter comes which is yet colder,
Each day the hoar-frost waxes bolder
And the last buds cease blowing.

German.png German translation

Der Sommer ist vorüber mit all seinen Rosen,
seiner Sonne, den Düften und süßen Blumen,
seiner warmen Luft und den erfrischenden Schauern;
und sogar der Herbst geht zu Ende.
Ja, des Herbstes frostiges Ich geht vorüber,
und der Winter kommt, der noch kälter ist,
jeden Tag wird der Rauhreif stärker,
und der Wind trägt die letzten Knospen
