English translation

In der Kindheit Jahren
Did you not learn
unter Tanz und Spiel
many kinds of joy
habt ihr nicht erfahren
dancing and playing
schon der Freuden viel?
during the years of your youth?
Blumen, Spiel dem Knaben,
The field gave you flowers
gab der Acker euch,
as a toy for you, the boy;
und, euch matt zu laben,
the tree bore fruit so richly
trug der Baum so reich.
to refresh you when you were weary.
