Potkal sem mladou cigánku
Language: Czech (Čeština) 
Potkal sem mladou cigánku,
nesla se jako laň,
přes prsa černé lelíky
a oči bez dna zhlaň.
Pohledla po mně zhluboka,
pak vznesla sa přes peň,
a tak mi v hlavě ostala
přes celučký, celučký deň.

J'ai rencontré une jeune tzigane
Language: French (Français)  after the Czech (Čeština) 
J'ai rencontré une jeune tzigane,
sa démarche était comme celle d'une biche,
deux tresses noires pendaient sur sa poitrine
et ses yeux étaient un abîme sans fond.
Elle me jeta un long regard profond,
et disparut, sautant par-dessus un tronc.
Ainsi, elle est restée dans ma
tête toute la sainte journée.
