littleprince   Translator: Gretchen Grosser

Oach, litje Prins, so mäd de Tied hääbe iek dien litje sweermoudige Lieuwend begriepen. Man een loange Tied hääst du niks uurs häiwed, as dät ju Sunne sinnich unnergeen, wan du die moal ferpuustje wüült. Dät wude iek wies an dän Mäiden fon dän fjoode Dai, as du tou mie kweeden hääst: Iek mai so aiske jädden sjo, wan smoals ju Sunne unnergungt.

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.
