O! du kläänes Prinzje, so longsom honn ich m’r kinne e Bild mache, wie trurich din klien Läwe war. ‘S änzichte, was dich devun abgelenkt hat, war de zart Stimmung vum Sunneunnergong. Diss isch m’r klar worr om vierte Morje, wie de m’r gesaaht hasch: Ich sieh so gär de Sunn unnergehn.

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.
