Scotland: Vols. VI–VIII.  1876–79.
 
Introductory to Sweden
Scandinavia
James Thomson (1834–1882)
 
(From Liberty)

THENCE the laud Baltic passing, black with storm,
To wintry Scandinavia’s utmost bound;
There I the manly race, the parent hive
Of the mixed kingdoms, formed into a state
More regularly free. By keener air        5
Their genius purged, and tempered hard by frost,
Tempest and toil their nerves, the sons of those
Whose only terror was a bloodless death,
They wise and dauntless still sustain my cause.
