Original text and translations

Alors, je lui répond: "Quant à moi, je ne sais
si j'ai l'oeuil chassieux (: maladie des yeux),
si j'ai perdu courage, si mes cheveux son noirs,
ou si je les ai blancs.
Jamais je n'ai appris de regarder mon visage dans le miroir."

Thus I answered him (or her): “As for me, I know not
if I am half blind,
or if I have lost my nerve, if my hair is black,
or if it is white.
I never learned to see my face in the mirror.”

Translation by Michael Nick
