by Klaus Groth (1819 - 1899)

Wenn Abends roth de Wulken treckt
Language: Plattdeutsch 
Wenn Abends roth de Wulken treckt,
So denk ik och! an di!
So trock vorbi dat ganze Heer,
Un du weerst mit derbi.

Wenn ut de Böm de Bloder fallt,
So denk ik glik an di:
So full so menni brawe Jung,
Un du weerst mit derbi.

Denn sett ik mi so truri hin
Un denk so vel an di.
Ik et alleen min Abendbrot -
Un du büst nich derbi.
