Poem of the Day: I met in the street a very poor young man by Victor Hugo

I met in the street a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat was threadbare – there were holes at his elbows; the water passed through his shoes and the stars through his soul.

— Original —

J’ai rencontré dans la rue un jeune homme très pauvre qui aimait. Son chapeau était vieux, son habit était usé ; il avait les coudes troués ; l’eau passait à travers ses souliers et les astres à travers son âme.
