English literal translation:

Where a little stream flows slowly

and May sows herbs,

a field daisy grew

and a grove rustled above her.

"It's so bleak in this grove,

that I'm horrified,

the fledgelings are too high,

and loneliness is bad for me."

Then a scout goes slowly:

"O Daisy, hello,

your charm impresses me,

do you want to be mine or not?"

The daisy agreed

And they went into dark forest,

But the scout was such a scatterbrain,

that he got into nettles.

And she, she, she,

what has to do, poor thing?

Leaned over the scatterbrain

and laughs: "Ha ha!"
