My childhood guilty pleasure was to disappear into the woods for hours at a time. I had my
own very vivid fantasy world there and no one to tell me what to do! Closing in on 60 years of
age, I still live many of my most brilliant hours in that world! I've loved Groundwaters from the
beginning, and I've challenged myself to get brave and send a couple of poems! Digte Om et
Gammelt Træ is a tribute to an enormous Douglas fir I happened on when I left the main trail
one day. The tree felt very grandfatherly to me, and since my grandfather was a Dane, it felt
right to sing his praises in Danish.
