Trost im Unglück
Trost im Unglück is a truculent exchange between a hussar and his paramour. Noisily proclaiming their self-sufficiency (she mocking his hobby-horse canter with a steadier, sidelong rhythm of her own), they gallop off in opposite directions, only to meet up next day, one suspects, for another round.
