You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Kvelding

Language: Norwegian (Nynorsk)

Snøen fell
i graae Kveld
stilt or mjuke Lufti.
Stilt og tett,
lint og lett,
legg som Dunseng mjuk og slett
dunkvit yver Tufti.

Veslemøy
vondlar Høy
i den myrka Løda.
Nisselaatt
kvìsar smaatt;
Tuftekall seg likar godt,
naar Buskap fær si Føda.

Gamal Kar
han er i Gard;
strengt han all Ting agtar.
Fylgde blid
fraa fyrste Tid
med i baade Stræv og Strid,
og helst han Fjose vaktar.

Difor òg
veit han fjaag
kva han hev i Vente.
Graae-Kropp,
Raue-Topp
kvar den Kveld sin Mjølke-Kopp
fær av snilde Gjente.

Mat ho ber
til Kui kjær,
og kvar og ei ho kjæler.
Gjerne ho
stullar so:
altid var ho dyregod
og aldri for Nissen fæler.

Varme Brunn
til tyrste Munn
hit fraa Eldhus ber ho.
Fær so snøgt
Ljos i Lykt,
mjølkar Kui lognt og trygt,
og breddfull Bytta fær ho.

Stelt og god
Kui so
roar seg til Nattenn'
Jortar smaatt,
legg seg godt;
Tuften kjem med enn ein Dott;
dansar so med Katten.
