Rasmussen Halfdan (1915—2002)Poems for children

Halfdan Rasmussen was a Danish poet. He was known for his nonsensical children's verse and his serious adult writings about social issues and human rights. Rasmussen was a resistance fighter during the German occupation. He became very well known and respected as a poet, nearly becoming a national poet of Denmark. One of his poems, Ikke Bødlen, was featured as one of the best poems on Human Rights on a 1979 book published by Amnesty International Denmark, and would be later translated into the first verse of Roger Waters' song Each Small Candle.
