(French, German)



French
J'ai rencontré dans la rue un jeune homme très pauvre qui aimait. Son chapeau était vieux, son habit était usé; il avait les coudes troués; l'eau passait à travers ses souliers et les astres à travers son âme.

German
Mir ist auf der Straße ein sehr armer junger Mann begegnet, der verliebt war. Sein Hut war alt, sein Mantel abgetragen; Wasser rann durch seine Schuhe. Aber Sterne zogen durch seine Seele.
