(This offers further evidence of Rotraud's considerable skill as a linguist -- the ability to construct a poem in rhyme in a foreign language is no small achievement.)
Many greetings I forward on
From Norway, where the stone comes from.
3 month lasted the passage duration
as long as Jakob’s on the Restauration.
In 1825 the boat big problems with the customs had,
But to release the stone, drove Keith almost mad.
There was no Cleng Peerson at the quay
To help Keith with the stone that day!
The lack of papers was significant,
So what you see here is an illegal immigrant.
But my appeal shall not deal alone,
With your need of immigrants ... or a stone.
I will not dwell on a polemic vision,
But feel I have a greater mission:
To deliver with all my heart and thought
The message my fellow members want to be brought.
From the Tysvær historical society
To you gathered here with all variety:
We are very proud we got involved
To help the monument project to be solved.
We feel we made a lot of friends
And hope this friendship never ends
But blooms and grows in many ways
Giving inspiration to all our days!
