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 April 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Mitt trollslott står i skogens bryn

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Mitt trollslott står i skogens bryn.
Av soln det får sin mesta fägring;
ibland det höjer sig till skyn
och visar sig som i en syn
så luftig som en havets hägring.

När solen tänds med nyfödd dag,
då flamma slottets fönster:
därinne bo blott du och jag;
dess tak är likt en sarkofag,
med krona utav okänt mönster.

I dagens ljus hon är av gull,
av koppar uti aftonsolen,
i månsken silvervit som ull,
i natten svart som järn och mull
och likblå som violen. 

Därinne bo blott du och jag,
där råkas våra bästa minnen;
vårt trollslott byggdes i ett slag
av luft och dagg en vårens dag
och soln i våra sinnen.
