by Klaus Groth (1819 - 1899)

Nachtrüter
Language: Plattdeutsch 
Ri' ik keen Sadelperd, bruk ik keen Tom, 
Plück ik min Ritpitsch af uten Wichelbom! 

Nachtens wennt düster is, stormt dat un ras't,
Min is dat beste Perd, wat de Wischen gras't! 

Black, reck de Poten ut! fleeg as de Wind! 
Drigg mi dœr Storm un Nach bet min leetste Kind!

Weest du wa't Finster klickt? weest du wa't deit? 
Spring ik bi Leefste rin, spring du na de Weid! --

Lusti is't Leben ahn Tœgel un Tom! 
Vageln plückt Kürschen: wokeen hört de Bom?
