Little Leen, come Outside 
the Golden oriole is already singing.
Time flies ... let's rush 
the present wil pass so fast.

In field and wide expanse released
like butterflywings of time.
Dance and play this present time so well
the past never comes again.

Let's be happy together 
the years that still remain
- connected with this Outdoorman -
are goin' fast like summertime.

Today w've a moment 
looking back you did. 
Spread your fast Red Wings 
we will fly together!
