littleprince   Translator: Annemarie Regensburger

Uje, kluer Prinz! So nach und nach han ich die klues, schwarmiatigs Lebm verstandn. Lang hasch als Unterhaltung nicht anders aswie die Frejd kejt, daß die Sunne untergangen isch. Des han ich earsch in viertn Tag z’morgeds derfragt, wie du zu mir gsejt hasch: Ich mag gearn, wenn die Sunne untergeaht.

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.
