Example text

Dort setzte ich mich auf einen Traumstuhl, und meine Gedankenmühle, die wegen Frost oder Dürre so lange stillgestanden, fing gleich lustig zu klappern an. Welch ein Platz ist das! Es ist eine Landstraße der Zeit, ein Markt der Geschichte, wo die Wege der Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft sich durchkreuzen. , hat stellen wollen. Die dreifarbige Fahne weht darüber. Es ist noch nicht lange, daß Karl X. mit großer Feierlichkeit den Grundstein dazu gelegt. Die Könige sollten sich doch nicht lächerlich machen und noch ferner den Grundstein zu einem Gebäude legen.

Es ist der Traum von einem Wunder! Schnell haben sie gesiegt, schneller haben sie verziehen. Wie mild hat das Volk die erlittenen Kränkungen erwidert, wie bald ganz vergessen! Nur im offenen Kampfe, auf dem Schlachtfelde hat es seine Gegner verwundet. Wehrlose Gefangene wurden nicht ermordet. Geflüchtete nicht verfolgt, Versteckte nicht aufgesucht, Verdächtige nicht beunruhigt. So handelt ein Volk! Fürsten aber sind unversöhnlich, und unauslöschlich ist der Durst ihrer Rache. Hätte Karl gesiegt, wie er besiegt worden, wäre das fröhliche Paris heute eine Stätte des Jammers und der Tränen.

Als ich unter dem herzlichsten Lachen fortging, dachte ich: mit diesem Spaß ernähre ich mich den ganzen Tag. Und er dauerte keine drei Minuten lang, keine dreißig Schritte weit! Im Hofe des Louvres begegnete ich einem feierlichen Trauerzuge, dessen Spitze dort stillhielt, um sich zu ordnen. Voraus ein Trupp Nationalgarden, welche dumpfe Trommeln schlugen, und dann ein unabsehbares Gefolge von stillen, ernsten, bescheidenen, meistens jungen Bürgern, die paarweise gingen und in ihren Reihen viele Fahnen und Standarten trugen, welche mit schwarzen Flören behängt und deren Inschriften von Immortellen oder Lorbeeren bekränzt waren.
