When I was born


Freja fødte torsdag d. 24 januar kl. 12:01 vores lille datter. Hun er i dag små 13 dage gammel. Måske hun ser på den dugfriske verden med samme magiske forundring, som Thomas Traherne beskriver det i digtet Wonder?

  How like an Angel came I down!
    How bright are all things here!
When first among His works I did appear
  O how their Glory me did crown!
The world resembled His Eternity,
    In which my soul did walk;
And every thing that I did see
      Did with me talk.

  The skies in their magnificence,
    The lively, lovely air;
Oh how divine, how soft, how sweet, how fair!
  The stars did entertain my sense,
And all the works of God, so bright and pure,
    So rich and great did seem,
  As if they ever must endure
      In my esteem.
