Two 1000 Year Old Norwegian Poems About Spring

  

Here are two 1000 year old Norwegian poems about spring. They have an anonymous author. They are called Two Spring Charms.

1.

Now it is late winter.

Years ago,

I walked through a spring wind

Bending green wheat

In a field near Trondhjem.

2.

Black snow,

Like a strange sea creature,

Draws back into itself,

Restoring grass to Earth.   

The picture is of the Trondhjem Bridge.  It seems a more modern spelling is Trondheim. Here is a link to information about that maritime city. It sure looks nice. Here are some facts about Norway.

Here is a link to a blogger who used to live in Texas but now lives in Norway. The blog is called Tales of a Texpatriate.
