Date: 26th of March , 1874
This day, began with the night. All earlier entries describing the events that occurred to me during the 24 hours of previous days have suddenly become dull, lifeless and pathetic. For today my soul has prospered to a higher level, my eyes have been opened and my diary will be finished.
24 hours I had each day, of which 9 I slept,
yet today I see, that their usefullness was greater than the other 15 for me.
As from today, I no longer wonder in the darkness of the day,
For my eyes have seen a sight, far, far away.
I was traveling the land
With my trusted friend.
It wasn't bad, it could have been worse,
If my friend had not been my horse.
Hungry were we both, he and I,
though when I saw the sight, I could not go by.
My friend unwillingly did stop, the off his back I hopped.
And as I approached the woods, behind I left a track.
then I pinched myself, »aw« the sight was reald that's a fact.
So marvelous, such peace and grace, the sight was truly great.
The night was clear and dark
and Mother Nature hugged me with her coldest arm.
Though it did not matter to me, if I shivered and shaked,
for my eyes were hypnotized by a gentle snowflake.
Lots of trees, around them peace, I need more of this.
All the village anger, stress, deserves nothing less than eternal rest.
These woods with snow is the place that makes me whole,
But my gaze and dream were awaken,
by the sound of my friends bells, if I am not mistaken.
Though that piece of heaven we did leave in a hurry,
to forget such beauty I did not worry.
I was richer in my soul and this is what I want you to know:
Don't be worried about the fact that the road is long
Cherish the moments that make your spirit strong
