�Der Mai ist gekommen, die B�ume schlagen aus,
da bleibe wer Lust hat mit Sorgen zu Haus.�
(May has arrived, the trees are bursting out,
may those who have problems stay at home.)
Central image is taken from an illustration by Kaspar K�gler (1838-1923), part of an 1890 mural that once graced the Wiesbaden Ratskeller, but was sadly destroyed in World War II.
Text is from a poem entitled �Burschenlust� (Young Man�s Pleasure), written in 1841 Emanuel Geibel and set to music in 1843 by Justus Wilhelm Lyra.
