Mellom Bakkar Og Berg (English translation)
Amid Hills And Mountains
Amid hills and mountains by the sea
The Norwegian has found his home
Where he himself has dug the foundations
And placed his houses upon them himself.
He looked at the stony shores;
There was no one who had built there before.
"Let us clear the land and build villages,
And then we will safely own the clearing."
He looked at the rough sea;
It was tough to set out there;
But fishes were playing down in the (water) flurry,
And that playing he wanted to see.
In the winter he sometimes thought;
If only I were here for ever!
And when the northern lights shine from above
His steely heart is filled with terrible nostalgia.
