The Gondolier in Romansch

Romansch is a language spoken mostly in Switzerland, where five different dialects exist. This translation of The Gondolier is in the Puter dialect spoken in the Upper Engadine.




Il gondolier

da Gareth D Jones

Il piz nair da mia barchetta tagliaiva lamin tres l'ova calma dals chanels. Il vehicul agil am ho servieu düraunt bgers ans ed ho mno passaschers tres las vias d'ova da la cited suot la guida da tuot mieus babuns.

Il sulagl tramuntaiva sur la cited antica, tuot las giassas guardaivan our scu faschas nairischmas traunter las chesas da crap da sablun. Eau d'he respiro plain tensiun l'ajer fras-ch da la saira.

Do que üna cited pü bella scu quista grandiusited plain chanels? Intaunt cha la barcha navigiaiva vers sieu löet d'he eau fermo il mumaint plain satisfacziun sün sieu viedi vers il tschêl s-chüranto dal Mars.
