littleprince   Translator: Leo Henderikx

Och, prinske, zoeë väör en nao höb ich de geheime van dien dreuf, klein laeve liere begriepe. Lange tied höbse dich geamuseerdj mèt ‘t kieke nao zonsóngergeng. Det lierdje ich de mörge van de veerdje daag wiese taege mich zags: Ich haoj van ‘t óngergaon van de zón.

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.
