During the night the wind had blown away all the clouds; the dark blue sky was spreading overhead, and in its midst was the bright sun shining down on the green slopes of the mountain, where the flowers opened their little blue and yellow cups, and looked up to him smiling. Heidi went running hither and thither and shouting with delight, for here were whole patches of delicate red primroses, and there the blue gleam of the lovely gentian, while above them all laughed and nodded the tender-leaved golden cistus.

(Johanna Spyri, Heidi, ch. 3)

À ma droite était un monsieur maigre, en chapeau blanc ; à ma gauche, deux conducteurs de diligence qui, par-dessus leur veste, avaient passé leur blouse bleue. Le premier, marqué de petite vérole et portant pour toute barbe une large « mazagran » noire, était notre conducteur à nous.
