Frosted in snow
gouged by ridges and crevasses
steep sentinels of time.
Tall giants anchored deep in sea
warmed by kinder sun as days extend,
they shed their winter cloak
rushing waterfalls from heights on high.
Simple homesteads perch on ledges
steep paths above cold waters.
they housed rugged folk.
Those who dared to live and love
within the soul of Norway’s fjords.
