Land of fjords, mountains, waterfalls, forests, beautiful cities and beautiful people. This poem was written several years ago and was published in the 2007 edition of Wordsmith. It came rushing back to mind during our recent visit to Norway, so I offer it here with slight modification.
Climb with me the rugged stair
With wonder gaze on mountain lair
On bank of silver brook we rest
Midst golden flowers dew caressed
Unblemished waters in their flow
Wash mountain stone with melted snow
And nurture verdant field below.
