With its rippling semiquavers, Ein Röslein zog ich mir im Garten is in a mode that Strauss would revisit in Die erwachte Rose, one of the three songs he sent to his friend Lotti Speyer in 1883. Here the piano-writing has become more sophisticated in the way it weaves itself around the voice part, and the change from major to minor in the last verse is unaffectedly touching.

Die sich kräuselnden Sechzehntel in Ein Röslein zog ich mir im Garten sind in einem Stil gehalten, auf den Strauss in Die erwachte Rose zurückkommen sollte—eines jener drei Lieder, die er 1883 an seine Freundin Lotti Speyer schickte (welches in Vol. 6 vorliegt). Hier ist die Klavierstimme deutlich komplexer und windet sich um die Singstimme herum; der Wechsel von Dur nach Moll in der letzten Strophe ist anrührend und ungekünstelt.
