As weary travelers, we land in Bergen
Close to midnight with the land still bright,
With jetlag, the time is quite uncertain
So we find our beds and say good night.
The next morning starts before the hour six
Starting at an award-winning coffee shop,
And we’re excited to learn the city’s tricks
In this spectacularly mountainous backdrop.
An early ride on the funicular
Where we get to see the whole city;
And what we’ve already seen in particular
From way up here, look more pretty.
The fish market does astound
But not as much as the blue skies
Because though they sell whale by the pound
Apparently the rain and clouds, only lies.
(*knocking on wood*)
Our first stop in Norway ends with lunch
At a place with a twist on Norwegian fare
Pickled veggies and salmon, a true 1-2-punch
And the restaurant Lysverket has its snare.
