Ich traf einen Mann

Ich traf einen Mann

Ich traf einen Mann by AngelusMortis
Ich traf einen Mann by AngelusMortis


This was initially a thought experiment that I came up with on the spot. The idea is (if you choose to do this elsewhere) try to remember exactly how someone or something looks as you see them and draw them from memory. I came up with this idea because I was sitting at this restaurant without any pencils or paper and saw a good looking guy. I think the drawing looks fairly close.

I later added that poem in German. My knowledge of German grammar is kaputt though; I needed some help.

The English says:
I met a man,
His hair was blond and fine,
I know another man,
Whose hair was blond and fine,
I met a man,
His eyes were dazzlingly blue,
I know another man,
Whose searching eyes were blue,
I met a man,
He is not someone I know,
I know another man,
Who is someone I know,
I met a man,
His face was fair and handsome,
I know another man,
Whose expression was as fair and as great as his mind,
I met a man,
Why does it matter that I know what he looks like,
When I know another man, who looks the same, yet who does not compare to this man,
When the man that I know was more intelligent than any other man that I know?
