Bernese (Alemannic) – Der chly Prinz

littleprince   Translator: Lorenz Pauli

Ah! Chlyne Prinz, naadisnaa han i dys schwäre Läbe afa versta. Lang hesch du di nume mit de sanfte Sunnenundergäng chönne ablänke. Das han i am Morge vom vierte Tag erfahre. Denn hesch gseit: I ha d Sunnenundergäng so gärn.

Oh, little prince! Bit by bit I came to understand the secrets of your sad little life. For a long time you had found your only entertainment in the quiet pleasure of looking at the sunset. I learned that new detail on the morning of the fourth day, when you said to me: I am very fond of sunsets.
