Winter, ade!

Seattle02Seattle01Seattle in winter. I took these photographs 12 days ago from the 75th floor of the Columbia Tower. And while we had snowflakes just on Friday, alas, this morning’s weather was different—the first morning in this very new spring that the sun was rising brightly at 6:30. It was quite lovely. To celebrate, here’s a darling little song: Winter, ade!. Goodbye, winter! Laters. Listen to it here.

Winter, ade! Scheiden tut weh.
Aber dein Scheiden macht
Daß mir das Herze lacht.
Winter, ade! Scheiden tut weh.

Winter, ade! Scheiden tut weh.
Gerne vergess’ ich dein,
Kannst immer ferne sein.
Winter, ade! Scheiden tut weh.

Winter, ade! Scheiden tut weh.
Gehst du nicht bald nach Haus,
Lacht dich der Kuckuck aus.
Winter, ade! Scheiden tut weh.


Goodbye, winter! Parting hurts.
But your parting
Makes my heart laugh.
Goodbye, winter! Parting hurts.

Goodbye, winter! Parting hurts.
I’ll gladly forget you,
You can always be far away.
Goodbye, winter! Parting hurts.

Goodbye, winter! Parting hurts
If you don’t go home soon,
The cuckoo will laugh at you!
Goodbye, winter! Parting hurts.
