Northern Low German (Low Saxon) – De lütte Prinz

littleprince   Translator: Arnd Immo Richter

Och, lütt Prinz, so mit de Tiet heff ik dien lütt swoormeudi Leeben begreepen. Öber en lang Tiet harrst du niks anners hatt, as dat de Sünn sacht ünnergüng, wanniehr du di mool verpuusten wullt. Düt Stück heff ik markt an’n Morgen vun’n veerten Dag. Do hest du to mi seggt: Ik mach dat banni lieden, wenn de Sünn ünnergeiht.

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.
