Norwegian Nature

Posted on Updated on

The eagle fly’s high
The whale dives low
the deer give a sigh
cry’s from the crow

Love of the four seasons
very clear reasons
the birth of the summer
woodpeckers drummer

the water is clear
fish are near
the gulls fly above
seals in Love

Norwegian Nature
you cannot manufacture
it is wild and free
buzzing from the bee

everything is very green
greener than you have ever seen
green turns to gold’s
as the autumn, unfolds

The nature in Norway
is happy everyday
it really is god’s country
some people do say
