Dr Shivago ?

Il dort. Quoique le sort fût pour lui bien étrange,
Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.

Hi, I was busy yesterday but today I hope I can guess with you again Posted Image And no DACH please...

anyway here is one:

She saw: first, a square opening, about eight inches wide, in the lowest step...finally she saw that there was a walnut shell, or half one, outside the nearest door...she went to look at the shell—but looked with the greatest astonishment.

English, 20th century and similar difficult as DACH Posted Image
