Norway’s highlands.

High o’er the dales with their verdant pride,

Up mid the clouds, extending wide,

The sensational fjords of Norway

The sensational fjords of Norway  

Is a desolate region of bleak plateau,

Lakes under jagged mountain walls,

 

Where a billowy mantle of virgin snow

Across the black knees of the cliffs is spread,

The sensational fjords of Norway

The sensational fjords of Norway  

And over the teeming waterfalls

A turreted ice field lifts its head.



Oft from beneath the glacier’s frown

The headlong avalanche thunders down.

The sensational fjords of Norway

The sensational fjords of Norway  

But flowers peep out from the jagged rocks,

On the naked summits their petals gleam;

 

And there are nourished the reindeer flocks,

Over crag and marsh they go rushing past.

The sensational fjords of Norway

The sensational fjords of Norway  

The mind of the hunter is lost in dream,

But wakes at the call of Adventure’s blast.

 

- - Johan Sebastian
Cammermeyer Welhaven

The sensational fjords of Norway
