Vi ere en Nation, vi med (English: We are a nation, we are) is a poem written by Norwegian poet Henrik Wergeland. Adapted as the lyrics of the Patriotic song "Smaagutternes Nationalsang,(English: National Song), the text express a desire that Norwegian Constitution Day also should be a day for the children. The most commonly used melody for the song might have been written by French Classical-period composer, André Grétry, but this has not been confirmed.[1]
