Bei einem Wirthe wundermild
Da war ich jüngst zu Gaste;
Ein goldner Apfel war sein Schild
Es war der gute Apfelbaum,
Bei dem ich eingekehret;
Mit süsser Kost und frischem Schaum
Ich fand ein Bett zu süsser Ruh
Der Wirth er deckte selbst mich zu
Gesegnet sei er alle Zeit
Von der Wurzel bis zum Gipfel!
(2) Ueber ihren klaren und göttlichen Spiegel gebeugt, sah ich nunmehr, dass alle schwarzen Ahnungen Recht
hatten, dass das Entsetzliche geschehen war. Ich sah aus ihrer Fluth einen mit zottigem Vliess bedeckten Leib mir abschreckend entgegenstarren, dünn und knöchern gewordene Glieder, die als ob sie Scham empfänden, sich in Fell hüllten, ich sah spitz und steifgewordene Ohren und ach! jene von meinem Umgange mit der Heerde mir so bekannte Physiognomie, in welcher der Mund sich zum breiten Maule verzogen, die Nase die lächerliche Streckung nach vorn angenommen hatte, die Augen aber, erschreckt von diesen Verwandlungen, nach den Seitenbeinen des Schädels auseinander gewichen waren mit einem Worte, denn wozu so viele? Im Spiegel der Poesie sah ich mich als jungen, wenigstens werdenden Bock.

And Aulus vowed that he would raise a temple to Castor and to Pollux, if they would aid him to win the battle; and he promised to his soldiers that the two who should be the first to break into the camp of the enemy should receive a rich reward. When behold there rode two horsemen at the head of his chosen band, and they were taller and fairer than after the stature and beauty of men, and they were in the first bloom of youth, and their horses were white as snow. And the enemy fled before them, and the Romans followed them to their camp, and the two horsemen on white horses were the first who broke into the camp. But when the camp was taken, Aulus sought for the two horsemen to give them the rewards which he had promised; and they were not found, only there was seen imprinted on the hard black rock the mark of a horse's hoof, which no earthly horse had ever made.
