Staunend sahen wir das große Pferd

Language: German (Deutsch)

Staunend sahen wir das große Pferd.
Es durchbrach das Dach unserer Stube.
Der bewölkte Himmel zog sich schwach
entlang des gewaltigen Umrisses,
und rauschend flog die Mähne im Wind.

Étonnés nous avons vu le grand cheval

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Étonnés nous avons vu le grand cheval.
Il est passé à travers le plafond de notre chambre.
Le ciel nuageux s'étirait faiblement
Le long de sa silhouette puissante,
Et sa crinière volait dans le vent en bruissant.
