littleprince   Translator: Abel Darwinkel

Ach, kleine Prins, zo bin’k zachiesan aal meer over joen kleine levenie gewaor worden. Jij hadden tiedenlaang gien aander dieverdaotsie as ‘t ondergaon van de zun. Dat heurde ik de veerde dag, doe jij zeden: Ik mag geern naor de zun kieken as e ondergeeit.

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.
