Edelweiss

Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white, clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
 
Blossom of snow
May you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever...
 
Edelweiss...
Edelweiss...
Bless my homeland forever...
 
Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white, clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
 
Blossom of snow
May you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever...
 
Edelweiss...
Edelweiss...
Bless my homeland forever...
 
  • Edelweiss:

    Leontopodium nivale, commonly called edelweiss (German: Alpen-Edelweiß), is a mountain flower belonging to the daisy or sunflower family Asteraceae. The plant prefers rocky limestone places at about 1,800–3,000 metres altitude. It is a scarce, short-lived flower found in remote mountain areas and has been used as a symbol for alpinism, for rugged beauty and purity associated with the Alps and Carpathians. It is a national symbol, especially of Romania, Austria, Bulgaria, Mongolia, Slovenia, Switzerland, and Italy. According to folk tradition, giving this flower to a loved one is a promise of dedication.
