Translation

(French, German)



French
La lumière qui aveugle nos yeux n'est que ténèbres pour nous. Seul ce jour-là point, celui dont nous avons conscience. Des jours vont encore se lever. Le soleil n'est qu'une étoile du matin.

German
Das Licht, das unsere Augen erlöschen macht, ist Dunkelheit für uns. Nur der Tag bricht an, für den wir wach sind. Noch mancher Tag harrt des Anbruchs. Die Sonne ist nur ein Morgenstern.

The sun is new each day.

What good is all sunrise, if we do not stand up?

Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.
