Example text

Som en liten blank sepeboble steg den glemte melodien opp i meg; liten og mangefarvet speilte den hele verden og brast så ganske stille. Når det faktisk kunne skje at denne himmelske lille melodi i all hemmelighet hadde funnet feste i min sjel og en vakker dag skjøt i været igjen med sine vakre blomster i alle de skjønne farvene, kunne jeg da være helt fortapt? Jeg var vel kanskje et villfarent dyr som ikke fattet den verden det levde i, men likefullt var det en mening med mitt tåpelige liv. Noe i meg ga svar, var mottager for anrop fra fjerne, høye verdener, i min hjerne var det stablet opp tusen bilder: Giotto'ske engleskarer fra en liten blå kirkehvelving i Padova, og ved siden av dem gikk Hamlet og den bekransede Ophelia, vakre symboler på all verdens misforståelser og sorger, der sto luftskipperen Gianozzo i sin brennede ballong og blåste i sitt horn, der gikk Attila Schmelzle med sin nye hatt i hånden, der stablet Borobudur sitt skulpturfjell opp i luften.

Jeg skvatt til da et menneske dukket frem fra et kullmørkt smug rett foran meg. Ensom og sen var han på vei hjem med trette skritt, med lue på hodet og blå kittel. Over skulderen bar han en stang med en plakat, og foran på maven, i remmer, en åpen kasse av den typen som gateselgere går rundt med. Trett skrittet han ut foran meg og så seg ikke om etter meg, for ellers ville jeg ha hilst på ham og budt ham en sigar. I lyset fra den nærmeste gatelykten forsøkte jeg å lese hans proklamasjon, den røde plakaten på stangen, men den vippet opp og ned, jeg greide ikke å tyde den.

Da lå nemlig menneskédelen i ham på lur, betraktet ulven, kalte den et kreatur og et udyr og ødela og forbitret alle gjeder ved dens enkle, sunne og ville ulvenatur. 3 Slik forholdt det seg altså med Steppeulven, og man kan vel forestille seg at Harry på ingen måte førte et behagelig og lykkelig liv. Dermed er det ikke sagt at han hadde vært ganske spesielt ulykkelig (skjønt det nok sto slik for ham, på samme måte som hvert eneste menneske mener at dets egne lidelser er de verste). Man skal ikke si det om noe menneske.
