Gebirgslandschaft mit Gletscher, Leopold Heinrich Vöscher (n.d.)
Suddenly It’s Spring
Suddenly it’s spring, a time of rebirth.
Sun tells mountains to set the waters free,
Then green is the new color of the earth,
In fields and forests ever so densely.
As a sleeping bear comes forth from its den,
So has my soul at winter’s bitter end.
Feels so lightened now that it is open,
To get out as there are fences to mend.
Gather together with friends once again,
Each lending a hand whenever they can.
There’s real joy in all hearts for certain,
Looking around we see empyrean.
In our hearts spring is valued more than gold,
With happiness its glory is extolled.
