want husur. Sei quant ta excuses ne sont kafi, io accepte dedie tod buk ei magvi qui so

mien dedication :

Ad Léon Werth
quan is eet un lytil pwarn.

I.

Kun eem sixat ho vis, oins, un schungjin kwiter, in un buk de orlays quos titule eet Gwiwta
storias. Tod kip un boa serpent quel sorpsit un simbva. En id copie ios rissem.

1
Eet baht in id buk : « Boa serpents sorbe ir hol praedd, aun giues el. Dind neti ghehdent
move ed swehpent unte ia six munts irs digestion”.

Ho tun maung-ye mohnto de ia jungle aventures ed, ep mien roig, ho kamyaben, med un
color molive, trace mien prest rissem. Mien rissem adadh 1 kwohkit katha :

Ho diken mien chefdover ad balirhs ed ho sprohct i an mien rissem dekhschiet i.

Mi habent antwohrdt : “Ma un hat dekhschatiet ?”

Mien rissem ne kip un hat. Id kip un boa serpent quel digestit un elephant. Ho tun rissen el
boa serpent sbei inner, kay i balirhs ghohd ghabe. Semper naudhent explications. Mien
rissem adadho 2 eet katha :

Balirhs mi hant radht ablinkwes rissems em ghyant au clus boa serpents, ed anter me
interesse ad geographia, historia, ed hissab. It ho tyohgven, sixat, un schungjin carriere os
pictor. Io hieb schawngdant ob id aunsuccessia miens rissem adadh 1 ed miens rissem
adadhios 2. Balirhs naiwo ghabe ject per seswo, ed strakeiht magvens im dahe semper
explications...

Ho ghi dohlgen chuses alyo kasseb ed ho ucto styre plavs. Ho pluct lyt quantloc tienxia. Ed
geographia, yaghi, mi hat maung daughen. Io siegv enderkwites, yant id prest mic, China ud
Arizona. To est util sei anghen se hat forpluken unte id noct.

Ho it haben, in id druna miens gwit, much contacts con much serieus leuds. Ho maung-ye
gwiwt bim balirhs. Ho vis i meg prokwtos. To ne hat meg kayjinto mieno mayn.

Quan incontrim oinem quel mi kwohk lyt lucid, probim talmed mien rissem adadh 1 ho
semper conservet. Gnohskwim an el eet druve-ye ghabmon. Bet semper el mi antwohrd :
“Est un hat.” Tun al tolkim neter de boa serpents, ni de orlaysa, ni de stars. Me dehsim unte
elso schaecheing. Al tolkim de bridge, de golf, de politique ed cravats. Ed el balirh eet baygh
masrour de gnohe un tem kemall wir…

2
II.

Also ho gwiwt mon, aun anghen con quel druve-ye tolke, tiel un avaria in id desert Sahara,
six yars prever. Semject hiebit brohct in mieno motor. Ed dat io hieb con me neter mecaniste,
ni passagers, me preparim ad pites kamyabe, mon, un difficil reparation. Eet pro me un
question os gwit au nehc. Hiebim payn wed pohtu unte octo diens.

Ye id prest vesper ho ghi narct ep id sando mil mayls dalg ud cada weicmen. Eem baygh
meis isolet quem uno naufrageit ep un plott medsu id ocean. Imaginet ghi mien surprise, ye
solweus, quan un goilo lytil voc me hat probudt. Id sieyg :

« Plais… reiss mi un ow !
- He ?
- Reiss mi un ow… »

Ho skanden ep mien peds kamsei habiem esen plagen ab id keraun. Ho suaghniht mien
okwi. Ho suaspohcen. Ed ho vis un alnos extraordinar smulk bonem qui me protiokwit grave-
ye. En id gohdst portrait quod, serter, ho kamyaben kwehre ex iom.

Bet mien rissem, weidwos, est maung-ye minter nraveihnd quem is model. Ne est mien rhalt.
Io hieb esen schawngdanihn in mien pictor carriere ab i balirhs, sixat, ed io hieb nel-ye uct
risses, ploisko cluden boas ed ghyant boas.

Spohcim ghi tod prehpen med alnos staunrund okwi. Ne myehrste od io wohs mil mayls dalg
ud cada weicmen. Api mieno smulk bonem kwohk neter forgwahn, ni mohrt ob strieke, ni
mohrt ob hungher, ni mohrt ob teurst, ni mohrt ob paur. Is nel-ye kwohkit kam uno magv lust
medsu id desert, mil mayls dalg ud cada weicmen. Quando bad kamyiebim bahe, io ei
sieyg :

3
- Bet quod kwehrs tu ter ?

Ed is mi repetih tun, meg mliak-ye, kam un baygh serieuso ject :

- Plais... reiss mi un ow...”

Quan id mysteir est pior pondost, anghen ne deurst desobedihes. Tem absurd quem to mi
kwohk mil mayls dalg ud vasya weicmens ed in mortal danger, salgihsim ex mien gep un
schid papier ed un kalem. Bet io mohm tun od io hieb hassa studyet geographia, historia,
hissab ed grammatic ed io sieyg ei smulk bonem (samt lyto dusdumos) od io ne siegv risses.
Is mi antwohrd :

« Ne importet. Reiss mi un ow. »

Dat io hieb naiwo rissen un ow, io rekwohr, pro iom, uter iom dwo saul rissems io ghohd. Tod
al cluden boa. Ed buim hayran ob aure iom smulk bonem mi antwehrde :

“ No ! No ! Ne volo un elephant in un boa. Un boa est baygh dangereus, ed un elephant est
baygh empedisant. In mien hem, quant est baygh smulk. Naudho un ow. Reiss mi un ow. »

Tun ho rissen :

Is spohc attentive-ye, dind :

“No ! So est ja baygh sieug. Kwehr mi alyo.”

Io riss :

Mien priento smih latif-ye, samt indeulgence :

« Vids ghi… ne est un ow, sontern un hamel. Is hat horns… »

Kwohryim ghi mien rissem :

Bet id buit refusen, kam ia prevers :

4
“So est pior veut. Volo un ow qui gwiv’ diu.”

Tun, bila patience, dat spohdskwim inkape id demontage mienios motor, scriblim tod rissem :

Ed bahsim :

« Tod est id diek. Is ow tu vols est eni. »

Men buim baygh surpriden ab vide id lige miens yun judce illumine-se :

“Est alnos kam io volim ! Credeihs tu so ow tehrpt maung gras ?

- Ma ?
- Ob mien hem est baygh smulk...
- To sessiet sigwra kafi. Tib ho daht un baygh smulk ow.”

Is clih sien cap kyid rissem :

“Ne tem smulk... Tia ! Is hat narcen...”

Ed it bignohsim iom lytil prince.

III.

Io tohrb maung wakto kay ghabe quetos is gwohm. Is lytil prince, qui mi iskwit maung werds,
kwohk naiw aure miena. Sont lafza swohrn kjiawxieng-ye qua, lyt ed lyt, mi hant revelet
quant. Also, quan is dyohrc mien plav ye id prest ker (niem risses mien plav, est un rissem
meg pior complicat pro me) is me sprohg :

- Quod tar est tod plav ?
- Tod ne est un ject. Tod pleuct. Est un plav, mien plav. »

5
Ed eem mynder os manthihes iom od io pluk. Tun, is oiscricit :

- Quod ? Has fallen waurntos !
- Ya, bahsim io kienkiu-ye.
- Ah ! To est goil....

Ed is lytil prince emiss un baygh jamile gleimen quod me erghit maung. Eiskwo od mien
biedas siant ayt serieus. Dind is nabahsit :

- Tun, tuschi gwehms waurntos ! Ex quod planete es tu ?

Io endervis fauran un diutis, in id mysteir os eys presence, ed interrogim brusk-ye :

- Gwehms ghi ex alyo planete ?

Bet is ne mi antwohrd. Is nuk mliak-ye ed sammel spohc mien plav :

- Est ver od, tosmed, khacs gwehme baygh dalgtos...

Ed is dub do un khayal quod durit diu. Dind, salgeihndo mien ow ex sien gep, is mers do id
contemplation siens tresur.

Yu imaginet kam maung io hieb ghohden ses pribuden ab tod pwolconfidence de “alter
planetes”. Ioghi me strohng ad woide meis de :

- Quetos gwehms tu, lytil bonem ? Quer est “tien hem” ? Quetro acskws tu mien ow ?

Is mi antwohrd pos uno meditative silence :

- Quo est gohd, med id diek mi has dahn, est od, nocts, tod ei daughsiet ka dom.
- Weidwos. Ed sei es latif, tib dahsiem yaschi un seil kay diehnes iom diens. Ed un
ank. »

Id proposen kwohk schocke iom lytil prince :

“Diehnes iom ? Quod un stragn idee !

6
- Bet sei ne diehns iom, gwahsiet quetrolibt, ed se forgwahsiet… »

Ed mien prient iter iliey :

- Bet quetro vols tu od gwaht ?
- Quetrolibt. Seid ant se…

Tun is lytil prince kieu grave-ye :

- To ne importet, mien hem est tant smulk !

Ed samt lyt melankholia, is nabahsit :

- Seid ant se khact anghen gwahe baygh dalgtro...

IV

Io hieb it mathen un second baygh important ject : eys tienjien planete eet payn mierer quem
un dom !

To khiek staunihes me maung. Ioghi woid od exter ia taungh planetes kam Terra, Jupiter,
Mars, Venus, quibs nams hieb esen dahn, eent centens alyen qua eent yando tem smulka
quem eet baygh difficil dyehrce ia med un telescope. Quan un astronom aunstohg oin ex ia,
el ei dahsit ka nam un adadh. El kiel id mathalan : « asteroido 325 ».

Ho serieusa sababs os credihes od id planete quetos gwohm is lytil prince est asteroid B
612. Tod asteroid buit dyohrcto tik oins, in 1909, ab un tyrk astronom.

7
Is ghi hieb kwohrt uno megil demonstration siens aunstehgen ad un international congress
os astronomia. Bet nimen hieb credihn iom bi-sabab eys trakh. Balirhs age it.

Noroc-ye pro id kleumen os asteroid B 612, un tyrk dictator impos ad sien folk, subpoena
mohrt, due europay-ye. Is astronom kwohryit sien demonstration in 1920, in un baygh
elegant roube. Ed ye cid ker quanti samstohm con iom.

Sei vos ho narren ta detayls de asteroid B 612 ed sei vos ho betrust ids adadh, est ob i
balirhs. Balirhs kame ciffers. Quando yu im tolcte de un nov prient, naiwo vos eiskwnt werds
de id essential. Naiwo vos saygent : « Qualg est id swon elsios voc ? Qua leiks meilt el ?
Collect el pelpels ? » Vos suwalent :
« Kam yarat est el ? Quayt swesgens hat el ? Quayt vyeict el ? Quayt algvt els pater ? » Tun
bad credeihnt gnohe el. Sei yu saycte im balirhs : « Ho viden un bell dom ex pemb bricks,
samt geraniums ant ia fensters ed columbs ep id tect...” khakent fiker tod dom. Im tehrpt ses
sayct : “Ho vis un dom costend cent mil francs.” Tun scrient : « Kam jamile id est ! »

Katha, sei yu im saycte : « id pruv od is lytil prince hat exist est od is eet nraveihnd, od is glih,
ed od is volit un ow. Quando anghen volt un ow, est id pruv od exist”, plectsient ed kalsient
vos un magv ! Bet sei yu im saycte : « Id planete quetos is gwohm est asteroid B 612 » tun
sessient convicen ed neti vos erghsient med ir questions. Sont katha. Ne tehrpt ses pighert
dia i. Magvi dehlgent ses baygh indeulgend im balirhs.

Bet, weidwos, wey qui ghabmos gwit baygh-ye goilmos adadhs ! Habiem milen inkape tod
storia ye id weidos basmen. Habiem milen sayge :

“ Uno sme lytil prince weict un planete payn mierer quem is ed tehrpt un prient...” Pro qui
ghabe gwit, to habiet kwohct baygh verer.

Neghi kamo od mien buk sia list lengu. Spreuvo tant gomra narrend-ye ta mehmens. Mien
prient hat abagen con sien ow ja six yars prever. Peito describe iom her mae myehrso iom.
Trauric est myehrse un prient. Ne ielganghen hat habt un prient. Ed ghehdo bihe kam i

8
balirhs qui se interesse tik ad ciffers. Darghi pro to ho kaupen un cutia om colormolives.
Kaurd est roissye, ye mien oumer, quando anghen hat naiwo kwohrt alya tentatives quem
tod uns ghyant boa ed uns clus boa, sixat ! Peitsiem, weidwos, kwehre possiblest-ye
samkwehkend portraits. Bet ne som alnos yakin os kamyabe. Uter rissem leit, ed alter neti
samkwehct. Rhalto lyt deschi buliende. Her is lytil prince est pior buland. Ter is est pior
smulk. Keungo deschi id color os eys costume. Tun me forreisso tetro cetro, tem gohd quem
khak. Rhaltsiem bad de certain importanter detayls. Bet to tehrpsiet mi ses indulgen. Mien
priento naiwo dahsit explications. Kad me credihsit samlik ei. Bet ego, way, ne sagvo vide
owens trans dieks. Kad som lyt kam i balirhs. Ho sollto gerasce.

V.

Cadadien io mathim semjecto de id planete, de id asimat, de id safer. To gwohm hol mliak-
ye, sekwent id hasard iom reflexions. It, ye id trito dien, gnohsim id baobaben drame.
Iter ye cid ker to buit dank el ow, ar brusk-ye is lytil prince me interrogit, kam lambhen ab un
grave dwoi :

“Kweghi est druv, od owi edde arbusta ?

- Ya, est druv.
- Ah ! Som masrour !”

Io ne ghieb ma eet tem important od owi ess arbusta. Bet is lytil prince nabahsit :

“Schowi kweschi i eddent baobabs ?”

Kauihsim iom lytil prince od baobabs ne sont arbusta, sontern drus tem mier quem kyrks ed
od, esdi ghendiet con se un hol churd elephanten, tod churd ne uperwehndiet hatta oin
baobab.

Id idee ios elephanten churd glihih iom lytil prince :

“Tehrbient ses deht ep mutu...”

Men is kieu mensdeh-ye :

“Baobabs, pre crehsce, inkapent esend-ye smulk.

9
- Exact ! Bet ma vols tu od tien owi edde smulk baobabs ?”

Is mi antwohrd : “Tia ! Vedim !” kamsei lit her de un evidence. Ed io tohrb uno mier effort os
intelligence kay ghabe ioswo tod probleme.

Edghi, ep id planete ios lytil prince, eent kam ep vasya planetes, andsa ed wayzda. Schowi
sell semen andsen ed khiter semen wayzden. Bet id semen est invisible. Swehpt in id secret
os ardh hin oin gran hat fantasia os gehre. Tun strehct, ed crehsct prever timid-ye kyid
diewum uno nraveihnd aunharmo smulk uradel. Sei leit de un uradel os rediska au trandafel,
maght ses sist crehsce kamlibt. Bet sei leit de un wayzd, id plante tehrpt ses rohven fauran,
yant anghen hat sagven recognihes id. Api eet terrible semen ep id planete ios lytil prince...
eet baobab semen. Id swol ios planete eet infestet ab tod. Api un baobab, sei anghen act
pior sert, naiweti ghehdt ses abdehn. Empediset id holo planete. Perforet id med sien
raudhs. Ed sei id planete est pior smulk, ed sei ia baobabs sont pior kathire, sprangent id.

Est un question os discipline, mi sieyg serter is lytil prince. Quando anghen hat enso sien
aghyernpuwen, anghen tehrpt kaur-ye puwnes id planete. Anghen tehrpt se strehnge
regular-ye ad rehve ia baobabs yant bihnt enderkweitet ud ia trandafels quibs meg
samkwehkent quan sont baygh yun. Est un baygh plictic, bet baygh facil orbat.”

Ed sem dien is mi riedh pliehge un bell rissem, kay suaentrihes to id cap im magven os
mieno mund. “Sei safernt sem dien, is mi iey, to ghehdsiet daughe im. Semkers ne est
inconvenient os hoane sien orbat. Bet sei leit de baobabs, to est semper un catastrophe. Ho
gnoht un planete, wiken ab un adriug. Is hieb neglegen tri arbusta...”

Ed sekwent ia deikens ios lytil prince, ho risst tod planete. Pau kamo eme id ton unios
moraliste. Bet id baobaben danger est tem pau gnohn, ed ia risks incurs ab quel se
forgwahiet in un asteroido tem muhim, od, ye oin ker, salgo mien sirr. Saygo : “Magvi !
Behrcte vos ud baobabs !” Kay warne mien prients de id danger i strip diutos, kam ioswo,
aun gnohe id, ho maung wohrct tod orbat. Id lection io dahsim se justificit. Kad yu
daumsiete : Ma ne sont, in tod buk, alya rissems tem grandiose quem id baobaben rissem ?
Id antwohrd est baygh simple : ho pit bet ne ho ghohdt. Quando ho risst ia baobabs, buim
animen ab id khisses os urgence.

VI.

Ah ! Lytil prince, ho ghabghaben, it, tieno smulk melankholic gwit. Hiebsta habto diu ka laab
tik id swiedhe iom soleurehps. Ho uct tod nov detayl, ye id aghyern ios quartios dien, quando
mi has saygen :

“ Kamo soleurehps. Smad gwahe vide un soleurehp...
- Bet tehrbmos skehpte…
- Skehpte quod ?
- Skehpte od id sol eurehpt. »

Has haben un surpriden wajkh, dind has glihto de teswo. Ed mi has sayct :

“ Dar me credeihm hem ! ”

Yaghi. Quan est middien in ia Uniet Stats, id sol, kam ielganghen gnoht, eurehpt ep France.
Esiet kafi gwahe France unte oino minute kay prispehce id soleurehp. Way est France baygh
pior dalg. Bet, ep tien tem smulk planete, tib eet kafi trage tien stul unte oika stieups. Ed
spohcsta regwos quanlibt...

“Sem dien, ho viden id sol eurehpe quargim quar kers !”

Ed lyt serter nabahsta :

“ Tu woid... quando anghen est tem yui, anghen kamt soleurehps…

- Kweghi ees tem yui ye id dien iom quargim quar kers ? »

Bet is lytil prince ne antwohrd.

11
VII.

Ye id penkto dien, iter dank el ow, tod secret ios gwit ios lytil prince mi buit revelen. Is me
sprohg brusk-ye, aun preambule, kam id fruit uns diu silent-ye meditet probleme :

“ Un ow, sei eddt arbusta, eddt el iaschi flors ?
- Un ow eddt quantum el incontret.
- Hatta flors qua hant aks ?
- Ya, hatta flors qua hant aks.
- Tun aks, ka qua daughent ia ? »

Io ne wois to. Eem tun baygh besic med pites disscruve un pior sohrt perchin ud mieno
motor. Io maung swurgh ar mien avaria mi bikwohk baygh grave, ed id exhaussien jlampohn
bayih me id khiterst.

“ Aks, ka quod daughent ia ?”

Is lytil prince naiwo tyohgv un werd, pos eiskwus id. Eem irritat ob mien perchin ed io
antwohrd quodquid :

“ Aks daughe ka neid, est mer peighert ud ia flors !

- Oh !

Bet pos un silence is mi mohld, samt un genos os waenkhoen :

« Ne te credeihm ! Flors sont slab. Sont nayive. Se rassurent med quo ghehdent. Se
credeihnt terrible samt ir aks… »

Io antwohrd neid. Ye tod instant io mi sieyg : « Sei tod perchin dar resist, id sprancsiem med
un hammercutt.” Is lytil prince oisturb iter mien reflexions :

“ Ed tu, credeihs tu od flors…

- Bet no ! Bet no ! Credeihm neid ! Ho antwohrdt quodquid. Ego som besic med serieus
jects !”

Is, hayran, me spohc.

“Serieus jects !”

12
Is me vis, mien hammer in mien hand, ed mien axesmeuro sword finghers, clihn ep un
objecto quod ei kwohk baygh biaur.

“ Bahs kam i balirhs !”

To mi dahsit lyt scham. Bet zalim is nabahsit :

« Tu confunds quant... tu mixs quant ! »

Is eet druve-ye baygh irritat. Is oiscuss in id wind alnos golden kays :

“ Gnohm un planete quer est un kirmiz poti. Hat naiwo respiren un flor. Hat naiwo spohct un
star. Hat naiwo liubhen anghen. Hat naiwo kwohrt alyo jecto quem additions. Ed unte id hol
dien is repeteiht kam tu : “Som un serieus wir ! Som un serieus wir !” ed to teumt iom med
gurur. Bet is est neis wir, sontern un baung !

- Un quod ?
- Un baung !

Is lytil prince eet nun alnos grassab pallid.

“ Flors makhneunt aks pon millions yaren. Lakin owi eddent flors pon millions yaren. Ed ne
est serieus daume ma tant se strehngent ad makhe aks qua daughent ka neid ? Ne est
important id weir inter owens ed flors ? Ne est serieus ni importanter quem ia additions uns
piwon rudh poti ? Ed sei ego gnohm, un tienxia unique flor, quod exist nealyer, ploisko ep
mien planete, ed quod un ow ghehdt pernices med oin cutt, katha, sem aghyern, aun
vighabe quo el kwehrt, ne est to important ! »

Is erudh, dind nabahsit :

« Sei semanghen kamt un flor quos exist tik oin exemplar in ia millions millionen stars, to est
kafi kay is est noroc’ quan el spehct ia. Sib sayct : « Mien flor est ter semloc… » Bet sei el ow
eddt id flor, est pro iom kamsei vasya stars gwenient ! Ed ne est to important ! »

Is neti ghohd sayge oino meis ject. Is bisluct brusk-ye. Id noct hieb gwohmt. Io hieb slebhen
mien alats. Druve-ye neti kieurim de mien hammer, de mien perchin, de teurst ed de mohrt.
Eet ep un star, un planete, mieno, Terra, un husurtu lytil prince ! Io glieb ed yieu iom. Io sieyg

13
ei : « Id flor tu lieubhs ne est endangern… Reissiem un capistra tieni ow… Tib reissiem un
armur pro tien flor… Io… » Io ne wois pior quod sayge. Io khiss baygh kyopev. Io ne siegv
nake ni joine id… Est tant mysterieus… id dakruland !

VIII.

Io uc baygh oku meis suagnohe tod flor. Hieb semper esen, ep id planete ios lytil prince,
baygh-ye simple flors, ornet med oin roig petalen, ed qua occupeer quasi neid rewos, ed qua
sturb nimen. Ia prohp sem aghyern in id gras, ed dind sgwes ye vesper. Bet tod hieb tuken
sem dien, ex sem semen brighen quetos nimen woid, ed is lytil prince hieb uperwakhen
baygh prokwtos tod uradel quod ne kwohkit kam alya uradels. To miegh ses un nov genos
baobaben. Bet id arbust mox zacrohsc, ed inkiepit prepare un flor. Is lytil prince, qui prispohc
id weisen uns enorm spreug, suakhiss tetos salgiet uno miraculeus prehpen, bet id flor naiwo
finih se prepare ad ses bell, in id schalasch os sien glend kamer. Id chus kaur-ye sien colors.
Endusit lent-ye, adjustit ein pos ein sien petales. Ne sielcskwit alnos gnitern kam ia adarles.
Prohpskwit tik in id plen argu siens beauteit. Ah ya ! Id eet baygh kharen ! Idsghi mysterieus
tesedin hieb duret diens ed diens. Ed dind sem aghyern, chiowdeo ye solweus saat, eno se
hieb diken.

Ed id, quod hieb wohrgen samt tant precision, sieyg gheihnd-ye :

“ Ah ! Just gehro... Beudo pardon ud vos... Som dar alnos nekohmt...”

Is lytil prince, tun, khiek arke sien admiration :

“Kam bell yu ste !

- Neghi, antwohrd mliak-ye id flor. Ed gnahsim sammel quem id sol...”

Is ghi lytil prince gvaess od id ne eet pior kienkiu, bet id eet tem emovend !

“ Est id saat, credeihm, os snidan, hieb id mox nabahn, esiete yu kafi sell kay mehne de
me...

14
Ed is lytil prince, alnos confus, vanus un oxkant khuld wed, hieb servet id flor. Sem dien,
mathalan, tolkend de sien quar aks, id hieb saygen ei lytil prince :

“Maghent gwehme i tighers samt ir noghs !

- Nemen sont tighers epmien planete, hieb object is lytil prince, ed de tighers ne
praedde gras.
- Ne som un andos, id flor hieb mliak-ye antwohrdt.
- Indeulcte mi...
- Baym neid ud tighers, bet abhorro airdrunas. Ne habiete yu un schirm ?”

« Abhorrte airdrunas… tod plante ne hat nassib, hieb kaut is lytil prince. Tod flor est baygh
complicat… »

“Vespers yu me dehsiete sub un globe. Est baygh srig in vies mund. Est dusinstallen. Ter,
quetos gwehmo...”

15
Bet id hieb se interrupen. Id hieb gwohmen sub os forme os semen. Id hieb ghohdt gnohe
neid de alter munds. Humilyet ob sinus surprindes se preparend un tem nayive lugh, id hieb
kwasen dwis au tris, kay pusce iom lytil prince do eyso zulm :

“Tod schirm ?...

- Vahsim vane id bet yu eete tolkend mi !”

Tun, id hieb dwighen sien kwas kay ei inflige mentangsto suisraen.

Also is lytil prince, nespekent id sell vol siens liubh, hieb oku dwoito de id. Is hieb ayn
serieusa sem aunahammiyat werds, ed hiebit bihn baygh biedan.

“ Ne habiem tohrpt klues id, is betrus mi sem dien, anghen naiwo tehrpt klues flors. Anghen
tehrpt spehce ed respire ia. Mien embals mien planete, bet ne siegvim ghawde to. Tod
noghen storia, quod me hieb tant erghen, habiet sollen emove me...”

Is mi betrousyit :

“ Tun ne ho sagven ghabe ject ! Habiem tohrpt kehnse id de wehrgs ed ne de werds. Id me
embals ed beluc. Ne habiem aiwo tohrben mwaungsoue ! Habiem tohrben gvaedde idso
tenderesse apter ids miskin khidas. Flors sont tem contradictor ! Bet eem pior yun kay sagve
liubhes id.”

IX.

Credeihm is brug, pro sien evasion, un migration gveren avs. Ye id aghyern ios asimat, is
suaurdh sien planete. Is puwit kaur-ye sien active volcans. Is possess dwo active volcans.
Ed to eet baygh-ye gadab kay chalde id snidan. Is possess yaschi un sgwest volcan. Sei
sont suapuwen, volcans aydhe mliak-ye ed regular-ye, aun eruptions. Volcanic eruptions
sont kam caminbrands. Okwivid-ye ep Terra smos pior smulki kay puwnes nies volcans. Itak
nos causent kowps om naos.

16
Is lytil prince rohv yaschi, samt lyt melankholia, ia senst ankuls om baobabs. Is credih naiweti
rikes. Bet quant ta familiar orbats ei kwohk, todegher, extreme-ye mliak. Ed, quan is oxit ye
un senst ker id flor, ed se preparit ad dehe id in schalascho sub ids globe, is aunstohg is
wohn plange.

“Adieu”, iey is ei flor.

Bet id ei ne antwohrd.

“Adieu”, repetihsit is.

17
Id flor kwies. Bet to ne eet ob ids kholt.
“Ho esen zevzeck, id ei iey bad. Beudo pardon ud te. Pliehg ses noroct.”

Is roy, med un discreto geste, kyusit sien planete, alter planetes ed ia stars.

Bet is mudimaar ne ieur iom. Mudimaars aiw aurnt tik laudes.

Is verslyning ghieb eet neid pace speh :

- Ne woidim. Ad nimen.

Ed ego aygwo ia stars, chunke nimen pre me hat aiwo sohgnet de aygwe ia.
- To est ver, iey is lytil prince. Ed quod kwehrs tu tommed ?

Is lytil prince ne eet bad satisfact.

“ Sei ego aygwo un halstuk, ghehdo kinges mien coll tosmed ed vehse id. Sei ego aygwo un

“To me zalisst, mohn is lytil prince. To est sat poetic. Bet to ne est baygh serieus.”

24
Is lytil prince hieb de serieusa jects dawis baygh different ud ia dawis im balirhs.

“ Ego, is nabahsit, aygwo un flor quod oxo cadadien. Aygwo tri volcans qua puwno ielg hevd.
Arschi puwno tod sgwest. Nimen woid an remansiet. Est util mienims volcans, ed mieni flor,

Id penkt planete eet baygh-ye curieus. Eet quanten smulkst. Ter eet just kafi place kay

“ Kad ya so wir est absurd. Lakin est minter absurd quem is roy, quem is mudimaar, quem is

Kun is liend ep id planete, is salutit muadeb-ye iom dagher :

“ Sellamat. Ma has tu just gwest tien fanar ?
- Est id instruction, antwohrd is dagher. Sellamat.
- Quod est id instruction ?

Ed is rediegh id.

« Men ma has tu just redaghen id ?
- Est id instruction, antwohrd is dagher.
- Ne ghabo, iey is lytil prince.
- Est neid ghaptu, iey is dagher. Id instruction est id instruction. Sellamat.”

Ed is gwesit sien fanar.

Dind is oiswohmbh sien chol med un rudhcareit handchirk.

“ Kwehro ter un terrible kasseb. Eet kemall prever. Io sgwes aghyerns ed diegh vespers. Io

- Ed pon tod zaman, hat id instruction changen ?

Ed is rediegh sien fanar.

Is lytil prince spohc iom ed is kiem tom dagher qui eet tem derv ei instruction. Is mohm ia

Anghen ghi ghehdt ses, sammel, derv ed gandul.

Is lytil prince nabahsit :

« Tien planete est tem smulk quem begeirs id med tri jambens. Tehrps tik ghange kafi lent-ye

Ed is gwesit sien fanar.

So, sib sieyg is lytil prince, menxu is siefer wayter, so esiet honnen ab ceters, ab iom roy, ab

Id sixt planete est un decs vaster planete. Eet wiken ab un veut Poti qui scripsit enorm buks.

- Ma tar ?
- Ob un leughend explorator dreibhiet catastrophes in geographia buks. Tem quem un

- Ob drehnkniks viden’ double. Tun is geograph niscribiet dwo ghyors, ter quer est tik

Is geograph stayg buit emot.

“ Men tu gwehms dalgtos ! Tu es explorator ! Vahs mi describe tien planete ! »

Ed is geograph, ghyanus sien register, glub sieno molive. Preter bihnt niscript med molive ia

“Tun ? interrogit is geograph.

« Mien flor est ephemer, sib sieyg is lytil prince, ed id hat tik quar aks kay alege protiev id

To buit eys prest regret mot. Bet is mudh ub :

Ed is lytil prince abgwahsit, sehgnend de sien flor.

Tun prohp el vulp :

« Sellamat, iey el vulp.

- Ah ! pardon “, bahsit is lytil prince.

Bet, pos reflexion, is bahsit :

“ Quod tar maynt “demnehn” ?

Sessiem pro te unique tienxia...

- Oh ! Ne est ep Terra”, iey is lytil prince.

El vulp kwohk baygh pribuden :

34
- No.
- To est interessant ! Ed hens ?

Bet el vulp rik sien idee :

“ Mien gwit est monoton. Saydo ians hens, i mensci me sayde. Vasyas hens kwehkent kam

El vulp swigh ed spohc diu iom lytil prince :

“ Plais... demneh me ! iey el.

Posdini rik is lytil prince.

“ Habiet est gohder rikes ye id sam saat, iey el vulp. Sei gwehms, mathalan, ye quar saat

Tun is lytil prince demnehsit el vulp. Ed quan id saat ios fortrehcen buit prokwem :

“Ah ! iey el vulp... Plancsiem.

Dind el nabahsit :

“Gwah revide ia roses. Ghapsies od tien est unique tienxia. Reicsies mi sayge adieu, ed tib

Is lytil prince abgwahsit revide ia roses.

“Yu nel-ye ste samlik mieni rose, ne bad ste ject, is ibs iey. Nimen hat demneht vos ed yu ne

Ed ia roses eent baygh taraghen.

Io antwohrd “weidwos” ed spohcim, aun bahe, ia diplas ios sand sub id meun.

“Id desert est bell”, nabahsit is...

Ed to eet ver. Ho semper kamen id desert. Anghen seddt ghom ep un dune ex sand. Anghen

« Ya, ieyim ei lytil prince, we leit de id dom, we ia stars, we id desert, quo kwehrt ir beauteit

Is lytil prince eroudhyit.

Ed nabahsim, hesitend-ye :

Is lytil prince eroudhyit. Is naiw antwohrd ibs questions, bet, quando anghen ereudht, ne to

“Ah ! ieyim ei, baym...”

Bet is mi antwohrd :

Bet ne eem rassuret. Io mohm el vulp. Anghen risct lyt plange sei anghen se hat sistem

dieweus, ne ho retrohft eys corpos. Tod ne eet un tem gwaur corpos... Ed kamo nocts
klustres ia stars. To est kam penk cent millions clockeln...

Bet eno wakyet semject extraordinar. Ei capistra ho rissen pro iom lytil prince, ho myohrsen
addihes koriga ! Is naiwo habsiet ghohden diehnes id al ow. Tun daumo : “Quod hat wakyen
ep eys planete ? Kad ya el ow hat ess id flor...”

Yando mi saygo : “Sigwra ne ! Is lytil prince schalaschbehndt cada noct sien flor sub ids glas
globe, ed suauperwakht sien ow...” Tun som noroct. Ed vasya stars gleihnt mliak-ye.

Yando mi saygo : “Anghen est distragen uter au alter, ed to est kafi ! Hat myohrsen, sem
vesper, id glas globe, autah el ow hat salgen aun blosk unte id noct...” Tun vasya clockels
changent-se do dakrus ! ...

Ter est un baygh megil mysteir. Pro vos quischi kamte iom lytil prince, kam pro me, neid ios
universe est samlik sei semloc, nimen woid quer, un owis quel ne gnohms hat, ya au no,
edden un rose…

Spehcte id waurn. Daumte : “Ess ne ess el ow id flor ?” Ed yu vidsiete kam quanto changet...

Ed nel balirh aiwo ghapsiet od to hat tem importance !
