by Theodor Storm (1817 - 1888)

Gode Nacht
Language: Plattdeutsch 
Över de stillen Straten
Geit klar de Klokkenslag;
God Nacht! Din Hart will slapen,
Und morgen is ok en Dag.
 
Din Kind liggt in de Weegen,
Un ik bün ok bi di;
Din Sorgen nd din Leven
Ist allens um un bi.
 
Noch eenmal lat uns spräken:
Goden Abend, gode Nacht!
De Maand schient ob de Däken,
Uns' Herrgott hölt de Wacht.
