Faroese – Tann lítli prinsurin

littleprince   Translator: Alexandur Kristiansen

Áh, lítli prinsur! Sum fráleið skilti eg, hvussu syrgilig tilvera tín hevði verið. Í langar tíðir hevði tú ikki havt annað at tikið tær til, enn at sitið og hugt at bjørtu sólsetursglæmuni. Hetta fekk eg at vita fjórða dagin, tá ið tú segði: Mær dámar so væl at síggja sólina seta.

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.
