Hessian (High Franconian) – De klaane Prinz

littleprince   Translator: Bernhard Naumann

Ah, klaaner Prinz! So nach un nach hab isch dei klaa schwermiedisch Lebe verstanne. Lang hast de als Unnerhaldung bloß die Freud an Sonneunnergäng gehabt. Isch hab des erst am verde Daach morjens erfahre, wie de mer gesacht hast: Isch hab Sonneunnergäng gern.

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.
