Translation of German text:
Come dear May and make the trees green again and leave me at the brook with the small blooming violets As I, nevertheless, so gladly long for violets again. Oh, I would gladly walk once again in lovely May!
Oh it is more gentle and greener outdoors Come, dear May, we children, we ask you to bring us much! Oh come and bring many violets for all of us, and also, bring many nightingales and beautiful cuckoos.
