Fruehling ist hier!

Er ist’s” von Eduard Mörike

Frühling läßt sein blaues Band

(Spring lets its blue ribbon)

wieder flattern durch die Lüfte;

(once again flutter through the airs;)

süße, wohlbekannte Düfte

(sweet, well-known scents)

streifen ahnungsvoll das Land. 

(portentously streak the country.)

Veilchen träumen schon, 

(Violets already dream,)

wollen balde kommen.

(want to soon come.)

Horch, von fern ein leiser Harfenton! 

(Listen, from far away a sweet harp!)

Frühling, ja du bist’s! 

(Spring, it’s you!)

Dich hab’ ich vernommen! 

(I’ve heard you!)

Who was Eduard Mörike?

german poems about spring

Mörike was a German Romantic poet and prose writer who lived in the first half of the 19th century. Romantic poets loved to write works in praise of Nature—a trait you can see in “Er ist’s.” Mörike is often compared to Goethe (arguably Germany’s celebrated famous writer and ,Frauenheld’) and many of his works have been set to music or become folk songs after his death.
