To my wife
tác giả: Ludwig Boltzmann (1844-1906)
Abroad, should I not entertain myself with foreign ladies?
Are they not the ones most similar to you in everything there is?
Quite often I kissed your picture on a paper: Oh please forgive me
that I also kissed your picture if I found it made of flesh and blood!
Beside, I am a theorist from bottom to the top
and so, believe me, did I only kiss in theory
