|Pale Blue Ink in a Lady's Hand|
Franz Werfel (10 September 1890 – 26 August 1945)
|I envy you ... |
Like you, I would have liked to write a book ...
Just the feeling of standing out from the crowd ...
Once again I feel relieved
that Fortune favours fools,
or as a German saying goes,
"Die dümmsten Bauern
ernten die größten Kartoffeln."
"The dumbest farmers
harvest the biggest potatoes".
Sometimes a saying
can be a great comfort.
