Ah, meu principín! Así fun comprendendo pouco a pouco el que era a túa vida señardosa. Durante muito tempo non tiveras outra distracción que as postas de sol. Al cuarto día enteireime dun novo detalle condo me dixiche: Préstanme as postas de sol.
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.
