Part of a series or song cycle:

Fjorton sånger om våren (Op. 40)


Äppelträd och päronträd (The apple tree and the pear tree)

Äppelträd och päronträd,
plommonträd och bigarå,
alla ljusa jungfrur små,
i små svarta flätor stå,
rodnande i solen.
Nyss var vinden lätt och späd,
Hör, nu klingar hög och fri
vårens hela melodi,
hör, nu svinga broms och bi
stråken för fiolen.
Äppelträd och päronträd,
plommonträd och bigarå,
alla ljusa jungfrur små,
rodnande i solen stå
med små gröna spetsar på,
rodnande i solen.

The apple tree and the pear tree

Apple trees and pear trees,
plum trees and cherry,
all the light little maidens,
wearing little black braids,
blushing in the sun.
Just now the wind was light and delicate,
Listen, now high and free rings
spring’s whole melody,
listen, now the fly and bee swing
the bow strokes the fiddle.
Apple trees and pear trees,
plums tree and cherry,
all the light little maidens,
are blushing in the sun
with little green laces on,
blushing in the sun.
