HANNA'S WALK

An inaccessible lake path

You don’t get very far with that pram. A young mother was fighting her way through a muddy forest floor among wild tree roots and even some of the minor slopes.
She looked at her smart phone. I saw a lake on the map, she said. A lake usually has a path. She was deeply frustrated. She had a wish to walk around the lake.
I told her about the neighbouring lake, Lyngby lake, whose path is much more suitable for a pram.
The path around Bagsvaerd lake is lovely but it isn’t suitable for prams all the way around because of a wonderful slightly impenetrable nature 🙂
I had a nice stroll from Frederiksdal to Sorgenfri. A wonderful varied walk.

Upon the hearth the fire is red,
Beneath the roof there is a bed;
But not yet weary are our feet,
Still round the corner we may meet
A sudden tree or standing stone
That none have seen but we alone.
Tree and flower, leaf and grass,
Let them pass! Let them pass!
Hill and water under sky,
Pass them by! Pass them by!

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
Towards the Moon or to the Sun.
Apple, thorn, and nut and sloe,
Let them go! Let them go!
Sand and stone and pool and dell,
Fare you well! Fare you well!
