littleprince   Translator: Volker Gröbe

Och, kleine Prinz! Su noh un noh han ich di klei leidmödich Levve verstande. Lang häs do för de Zick ze verdrieve bloß die Freud jehat zozesinn, wie daachdäächlich de Son unterjeit. Ich han dat eesch am veerte Daach en der Fröh metkräje, wie do jesaht häs: Ich han Sonneunterjäng ärch jän.

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.
