Language: Norwegian (Nynorsk)

Hugen fer so vida millom Von og Kvida.
Myket kjemer til, som ingen hadde spaatt,
myket kjemer stort, og verdar sidan smaatt.
Hugen fer so vida

Hugen fer som Draumen att og fram i Straumen,
Fram i Vegen vist eg ventar meg en Skatt,
naar eg kjemer der, so er han burte radt.
Hugen fer so vida.

Submitted by Nils Lid Hjort

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
