littleprince   Translator: Hartmut Preß

Och, klaaner Prinz! So bröcklesweis hob ich dei klaans schwermütichs Lebm verstanna. Lang host du als Unterholtung nix anders gekennt als wie tochtächlich zuzäguckn, wie die Sunna neigerutscht is. Des wor dei Freud. Ich hob des örscht om viertn Toch in der Früh mitkricht, wiest zä mer gsocht host: Ich moch des, wenn die Sunna untergeht.


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.
