"Ich hab´ ein äußerst seltsames Gesicht gehabt! / Ich hatt´nen Traum – what a weird dream I had – ´s übersteigt die menschliche Intelligenz, zu sagen, was für´n Traum ´s war: man is but an ass – n`Esel/n`Arsch, if he go about to expound this dream – tried to explain it / mir war, als wär ich / mir war, als hätt ich – no eye has ever heard, no ear has ever seen, no hand has tasted, or tongue felt, or heart described what my dream was like / but man is but a patched fool, wenn er/sie wirklich sagen will, was ich war."
