Wind and storm dance


'Dance of the Wind and Storm'
by Thomas Blackshear

The wind tells a tale...

'Vinden fortæller om Valdemar Daa og hans døtre'
'The Wind Tells About Waldemar Daa and His Daughters'
By Hans Christian Andersen, 1859

When the wind sweeps across the grass, the field
has a ripple like a pond, and when it sweeps across the
corn the field waves to and fro like a high sea. That is
called the wind's dance; but the wind does not dance only,
he also tells stories; and how loudly he can sing out of his
deep chest, and how different it sounds in the tree-tops
in the forest, and through the loopholes and clefts
and cracks in walls!

Valdemar Daa and his daughters


Valdemar Daae and Else Kruse, 1659

The real Valdemar Daae (1615-91), was an alchemist
and because of very unfortunate attempts to make gold,
he had to leave his home Borreby Castle in 1681 as
a broken mand. He brought with him his three
daughters Ide, Joanna and Anna Dorothea
