Norge, mitte Norge, a well-known favorite national song in Norway since the early 1900s, has now reached the status of Norwegian folksong.  The 1898 poem by the Norwegian poet Theodor Caspari (1853-1948) evokes a warm response to nature and to Norway.  The music and poetry occupy a place in Norwegian cultural life comparable to America the Beautiful in the United States.
