but also some of Winterreise (Winter Journey) is a cycle of 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller, set by Franz Schubert

Schubert

I steal away by moonlight, in winter, because love wanders.
The wind blows the vane this way and that way; the wind beats at the window panes.
Inside my chest, my warm heart still beats, but the images are frozen.
My favorite place seems to invite only death.
Snow I walk through will melt, ice will melt into the river, and with the water meeting water, all traces of love, of me, will melt away.
It is really she who stole my love, who stole my warmth, who stole me.
Every river flows to an ocean, every favorite place leads to the place of death.
Every anonymous bright sky, calm sky, distant sky freezes me. In news, in dreams, I imagine warmth, warmth like love.
If I sing, sing in the ice, sing in the snow, sing to the springtime and the free river, I will continue to wander.

life’s pleasure is mixed with pain

Cupid complains to Venus of being stung by bees when stealing a honeycomb. This is to be taken as moral commentary.

Signed on the stone bottom right with Cranach's device. Inscribed, top right: dvm pver alveo (lo) f (vratvr me)lla cvpido/fvranti digitvm cv(spide) f(ixit) apis/sic etiam nobis brevis et (peri)tvra volvptas/qvam petimvs tri (s)t(i) (m)ixta dolore n(o)cet.
Cupid complains to Venus of being stung by bees when stealing a honeycomb. This is to be taken as a moral commentary; as the inscription observes: 'life's pleasure is mixed with pain.'

The subject derives (but the last two lines of the inscription do not) from Theocritus' 'Idyll' 19 (The Honeycomb Stealer). Two Latin translations of 1522 and 1528 by German scholars are known. Johann Hess, a humanist, made, in his copy of one of them, the manuscript note 'Tabella Luce', which means 'Picture by Lucus', perhaps referring to this work by Cranach.

Few sounds bring as much joy to my heart as the song of the Winter Wren, with its exuberant, cascading warble ringing out in the springtime forest. As ornithologist Stanley Cramp (1988) wrote, it sings "as if [the] bird [were] trying to burst [its] lungs. "
The Winter Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes from the Greek meaning "one who creeps into holes") is one of fifty-nine species of wrens.
This seems strange until one realizes that ancient Greek "troglodytes" translates to "cave dweller," which describes well the wren's love of dark and concealed places.
