As a guard of honour here, stand Fogelberg's Odin, and Sergei's Amor and Psyche. And what is the Streamparterre? The Neapolitans would tell us: It is in miniature quite in miniature the Stockholmers' "Villa Reale." The Hamburgers would say: It is in miniature quite in miniature the Stockholmers' "Jungfernstieg."
How beautiful it is to look out from the window up here, to look over the water and the Streamparterre to that great, magnificent palace, to Ladegaards land, with the large barracks, to Skipholmen and the rocks that rise straight up from the water, with Södermalm's gardens, villas, streets, and church cupolas between the green trees: the ships lie there together, so many and so close, with their waving flags.
