Genoese (Ligurian) – O prinçipìn

littleprince   Translator: Alessandro Garibbo

Ah! Prinçipìn, ò compréizo, ciancianìn, coscì, a teu vitta piciña e malincònica de figeu solo. O l’ëa de pe coscì che pe a teu distraçión ti no avéivi avùo nintätro che o doçe di tramonti. Ò capïo sta nœvitæ o quarto giorno, de matìn, quande ti m’æ dïto: Me piaxan tanto i tramonti.

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.
