Photo on Sunday 2013-16

While on my tour of Haugesund a while ago, I spotted this monument. Normally I am not really one for poetry, but I loved this one. And I wanted to share it with you! Of course you reading it in Norwegian won't mean much, so below is the English translation!

So gather your flowers
in a big bouquet
Gather your lights
to see through the dark
Gather your happiness
to bear all the crying
Gather your hope
to hold on to the dream
Gather your thoughts
to withstand all doubt

So gather your people
Gather our fellow man
Gather together

Lars Saabye Christensen
