English translation

Wenn die Frühlingslüfte streichen
When the springtime breezes caress
Und durch bunte Felder wehn,
and waft through colorful meadows,
Pflegt auch Amor auszuschleichen,
Love will often slip abroad
Um nach seinem Schmuck zu sehn,
to seek after his treasure,
Welcher, glaubt man, dieser ist,
which, it is believed, is this:
Daß ein Herz das andre küßt.
that one heart kisses another.
