Translation of German original in English:
So took the clown * her right foot * in her left hand * hopped * on her left foot * through the circus arena * until she with her right hand reached * the first rung * of the ladder * toward the sun.
***** She swiftly climbed up. *****
Today people doubt * whether she was a real clown * if she didn't enjoy * the circus.
