.My farm Elgsnes......

From sea-floor all up the high hill,
This farm is its own true domain.
Though far off, it fathoms me full.
My soul no place else could contain.
This feeling that strikes me so oft,
It fills me entirely - keeps me aloft,
And me to my labour ordains.
  Poem written by Edvard Ruud
