"Stien" as written by and Sven Atle/denker Kopperud....
Svunne tider på Jotuns vei
Der over høye klipper og fjell
Har merket den med støv og aske
Fra dengang alders hirder
Vandret på disse kanter

Her Gandviks bergtroll trampet frem
I ondt og stort et tussefølge
Hvor ferdafolk fant stor en visdom
Om landets skogsliv og mørke sider
Her på stien som bukter seg uendelig frem
Mellom berg hvor de vanskelig fremdeles
Kan øynes i horisonten

Så storslått det må ha vært
Og speide ut over alt dette
Og å vandre så alene og fri
En høstkveld i en kald og lett tåke
Slik som mange før meg har opplevd
Og som mange før meg har verdsatt

Men minner blir glemt av tidens gang
Og lite er her som det engang var
Her som ellers har blader visnet
Men falt ned på en forfallen jord
Hvor drømmer og liv har dødd ut

Men kanskje bak en stien
Eller bak en gammel busk
Sitter fortsatt.....hmm
Og venter?

    My InterpretationForgotten times on Jotuns path
    There over high cliffs and mountains
    Has marked it with dust and ashes
    From when Alders' herds wandered these grounds.
    Here Gandviks Cave trolls stamped forth
    In an evil and large goblin-herd
    Where rangers found a big wisdom
    About the lands forest-life and dark sides
    Here on the path who creeps eternally forth
    Between banks where they difficult still
    Can be seen in the horizon
    So great it must have been
    To look out over all this
    And to wander so alone and free
    An autumn evening in cold and light mist
    Like many before me have experienced
    And many before me have appreciated
    But memories are forgotten as time passes by
    And little is here that once were
    Here like elsewhere leaves have wizened
    But fallen down on a collapsed earth
    Where dreams and lives have passed away
    But maybe between a rock
    Or behind an old buch
    Sits still...
    And waiting
