Happy Bitrhday Alf Prøysen

This year (2014) is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alf Prøysen. He was one of the most significant songwriters of our last century, and has participated in the shaping of Norwegian culture and their national identity.

Here is a homage that I wrote for our national day, the 17th of May 2014. It is in a fairytale-potpourri-style, thus portraying some of the magic that lies in the words of our writer. I also felt compelled to give it all a fresh and lively touch because I wrote it in the spring.

Enjoy!
