Da war Gold in deinen Augen,
Gold auf deinem Haar.
Mußt mir heut´ und immer glauben,
dass noch nie ein Tag so herrlich war,
herrlich war.

There was gold in your eyes, gold on your hair,
You have to believe me,
There was no such day like this before,
Wonderful.

Raw translation of this German song by Frank Schoebel. Came to my mind when I saw all the golden pollen on this wee bee's hair.
Terrific detail all over,
Johanna
