West Frisian (Frisian) – De lytse prins

littleprince   Translator: Jacobus Q. Smink

Och, lytse prins, sa stadichoan begûn ik wat sicht op dyn lytse mankelike libben te krijen. Do hiest skoftenlang gjin oare ferdivedaasje as de wille oan it ûndergean fan de sinne. Dat hearde ik de moarns fan de fjirde dei doe’tst tsjin my seidest: Ik mei graach oer it ûndergean fan de sinne.

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.
