Text:
“Der Mai ist gekommen, die Bäume schlagen aus.”
(May has arrived, the trees are bursting out.)

Central image is taken from an illustration by Kaspar Kögler (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.
