Here you will find the Poem May Song of poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
How fair doth Nature Appear again! How bright the sunbeams! How smiles the plain! The flow'rs are bursting From ev'ry bough, And thousand voices Each bush yields now. And joy and gladness Fill ev'ry breast! Oh earth!--oh sunlight! Oh rapture blest! Oh love! oh loved one! As golden bright, As clouds of morning On yonder height! Thou blessest gladly The smiling field,-- The world in fragrant Vapour conceal'd. Oh maiden, maiden, How love I thee! Thine eye, how gleams it! How lov'st thou me! The blithe lark loveth Sweet song and air, The morning flow'ret Heav'n's incense fair, As I now love thee With fond desire, For thou dost give me Youth, joy, and fire, For new-born dances And minstrelsy. Be ever happy, As thou lov'st me!
