Aftenstemning

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Solen skinner vakkert om kvælden,
katten ligger doven ud på hællen;
 "To små mus,
 fløde af et krus,
 fire stykker fisk
 stjal jeg bag en disk,
 og er så god og mæt,
 og er så doven og træt,"
 siger katten.

Kyllinghønen vingerne sænker,
hanen står på et ben og tænker;
 "Den grå gås
 styrer høj nok kås,
 men se til, om den kan
 nå en hane i forstand?
Ind, ind, høner under tag,
solen kan gærne få lov for idag."
 siger hanen.

"Herregud, det er godt at leve
for den, som slipper at stræve,"
  siger fuglene.
