Southern Limburgish (Limburgish) – D’r klinge Prins

littleprince   Translator: Leonie Robroek

Och, klinge prins, zoe mit en mit han ich de geheime van die klee dreuf leëve, liere begriepe. Lange tied haste dich ammezeerd mit alling mar kiekke noa ‘t óngergoa van de zon. Dat lieret ich d’r mörge van d’r veerde daag wieste mich zags: Ich haod van ‘t óngergoa van de zon.

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.
