Do not enjoy spring, since it comes to an end

Bert B

There are only few spring days remaining and it is time to repeat Bert Brecht’s sound advice in a slightly modified form.

The original reads: Nūtze die Jugend nicht, denn sie vergeht.

Basically spring is for young people or for those who wrongly consider themselves young when they get drunk or intoxicated.Mr. Mahler wisely dedicated a separate piece of music both to erratic youngsters (No. 3) and to erratic drunkards (No.5).
