Description

Davíð Stefánsson was born in 1895 on the farm Fagriskógur in Eyjafjordur. He published his first collection of poems in 1919, entitled Svartar fjaðrir (Black Feathers). Davíð was determined to be true to himself when writing his verse. He viewed his own poetry as provocative in nature, he confronted difficult subjects and therefore probably never imagined the reception that this first publication would have. Black Feathers was extremely well received by the public. The first printing sold out within a short time and the poems were soon being widely recited. Rarely, if ever, has an Icelandic poet been so well received on the publication of his first works. Davíð became one of the most loved poets of this nation. His fifth collection Í byggðum (Among Human Habitation) was published in 1933 and received a very positive critique. At this point in time he was at the pinnacle of his career. One of the poems in this collection is titled Nú skil ég stráin (Now I understand the blades of grass) and this insightful line is taken from that poem:

       Þeir vita það best, hvað vetur er, sem vorinu heitast unna.

       They know best, what winter is, who most love the spring.

Orð  Davíð Stefánsson fæddist árið 1895 Í Fagraskógi við Eyjafjörð. Árið 1919 gaf hann út sína fyrstu ljóðabók sem nefndist Svartar fjaðrir. Davíð hefur líklega ekki órað fyrir þeim móttökum sem bókin átti eftir að fá. Hún seldist upp á skömmum tíma og fljótlega voru kvæðin á hvers manns vörum. Sjaldan eða aldrei hafa íslensk skáld náð jafnmiklum vinsældum með sinni fyrstu ljóðabók. Ljóðin báru með sér ferskan blæ og leiddu lesandann inn á nýjar slóðir ljóðlistar. Davíð tjáði sig opinskátt og á einfaldari og persónulegri máta en áður hafði tíðkast og varð eitt ástsælasta skáld þjóðarinnar. Árið 1933 gaf hann út sína fimmtu ljóðabók, Í byggðum. Bókin fékk frábæra dóma og um þetta leyti stóð Davíð á hápunkti sem ljóðskáld. Nú skil ég stráin er eitt af kvæðum þessarar ljóðabókar og úr því er þessi fallega ljóðlína:  Þeir vita það best, hvað vetur er, sem vorinu heitast unna.
