Philip Gross’ new version of 'Gerd’ by Norwegian poet Nordahl Grieg is one of three poems commissioned by the Poetry Society in celebration of the world’s most famous Christmas tree. Norway’s most important war poet, Grieg escorted Norway’s King Haakon VII to his wartime exile in London, and was later killed in action on 2 December 1943. Gerd is both a love poem to his wife Gerd and an evocation of peace and the natural landscape.
“I recognise the Nordic attitude to nature and to one’s home landscape,” says Professor Gross, “from my own father, who came as a wartime refugee from Estonia.”
