Salentino (Sicilian) – Lu principinu

littleprince   Translator: Emanuele Barbati

Oh principinu, picchi a ppicchi gghiú canusciútu la trixti e curta vita tua. Pi ttanta tiempu cu sbárii nnu picchi no á pututu fari otru cu triminti li tramoni. M’ágghiu mparatu xt’otru fattu, la matína, quannu mi ticixti: Quantu mi piáciunu li tramonti.

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.
