From Whence I Came

 

FROM WHENCE I CAME

Stoic and
reserved with strangers,
yet ready
and willing
to lend a hand whenever
my help is needed.

My love of
country, evident;
my simple
faith is clear.
A keen mind–education,
key to confidence.

Though my feet
haven’t touched her soil
I find my
character
firmly rooted in the traits
of the Norwegians.
