Düsseldorf German (Low Saxon) – Dä kleene Prenz

littleprince   Translator: Monika Voss

Och, leew kleene Prenz, eesch pö-a-pö hann ech di Läwe, so kleen on trist, verstange. En lange Ziet es din eenzeje Freud jewäse, jede Daach senn zo könne, wie de Sonn am ongerjonn es. Dat hann ech spetz jekritt am veehde Daach morjens, als wie du för mech jesaht häs: Ech stonn janz doll op Sonneongerjäng.

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.
