Der Weg ist unendlich, da ist nichts...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Weg ist unendlich, da ist nichts abzuziehen, 
nichts zuzugeben und doch hält jeder 
noch seine eigene kindliche Elle daran. 
»Gewiß, auch diese Elle Wegs mußt du noch gehen, 
es wird dir nicht vergessen werden.«

Le chemin est sans fin, il n'y a rien à...

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

Le chemin est sans fin, il n'y a rien à ôter,
rien à ajouter, et pourtant chacun tient
encore sa petite aune enfantine.
« C'est sûr, tu devras aussi faire cette aune de chemin,
cela ne sera pas oublié pour toi. »
