Hümmling Low German (Low Saxon) – De lüttke Prinz

littleprince   Translator: Heinrich Book

O du mien lüttken Prinz, gaenz sinnig un bie Lüttken haebbe ik denn raechten Begrüpp van dien swarmöüdige lüttke Läwen kräägen. En heeile Tied haest du as Sellskup un Tiedverkaatergen niks aenners haett as de leeiwlerken Sünnenunnergaenge. Daet bün ik gewaohr wooren aen’n veeierden Daech smaanens as du tou mie sääst: Wat maech ik daet geerne lien, wenn de Sünne unnergeiht!

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.
