Tabarchin (Ligurian) – U prìncipe picin

littleprince   Translator: Margherita Crasto and Maria Carla Siciliano

Oh prìncipe picin, à pócu à pócu ho acapìu a tó piciña e triste vitta. Pe tantu tempu ti nu t’è avüu otru che a beléssa di tramunti. Ho acapìu sti nöi aspetti de ti â matin du quòrtu giurnu, quande ti m’è ditu: Végnu mattu pai tramunti.

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.
