Arbeter Fraint, December 14 1888, page 4
The bird has the freedom to fly,
To eat enough to be sated
The rose, the freedom to bloom
With true colors, without deception,
The bear its lair in winter,
The swallow its summer nest;
They freely leave these behind
When the winter frosts have ended.
Freely the lilies grow in the fields;
Freely nature reigns over all.
Freely the trees grow in the woods.
There is not even a trace of someone ruling over them
Freely the sun illuminates for all
And shines wonderfully and beautifully.
On weakness [as well as] on greatness and power.
Nature gives us what is right
For everyone: not too much, just enough.
It doesn’t differentiate between weakness and power,
Between the poor, the strong or the wealthy.
It is only people who make things unequal, And do what others regret, Drowning in egoistical weakness. Oh, how much longer must this go on?
