...another place to wander around
Welcome to my virtual notebook,
a place for keeping some things I don't want to forget...
A visual wall of inspiration for thought gathering.
My heartfelt thanks to all who have contributed here,
for this notebook would be empty without you.
The Heart Book is regarded as the oldest Danish ballad manuscript. It is a collection of 83 love ballads compiled in the beginning of the 1550’s in the circle of the Court of King Christian III. Shown above is the beginning of ballad no. 43, Store længsel, du går mig nær (Great Yearning, thou touches me).
