This scented wind

Rising off the fields

Freshly covered with

Tender green planted

There by the young and

Darkly handsome monsoon,

This scented wind reminds me

Of you and Billund;

The summer breeze fragrant

And lightly kissing cheeks

Like a playful mom welcoming

Her after-school kids on an open porch,

The meadows, the trees, the lazy lakes,

The hedges and the birds of this scenic

Danish town with its smiling residents saying Hi

To utter strangers on cool summer afternoons!

Billund is a piece of paradise created by loving hearts

And minds and a global capital of children in a most

Happy nation!
