General Notes: Nils skreiv dikt i Dølen nr 14 1913:

Ver på vakt.
Sterke er magter myrke ;
dei fangar so mangein mann.
Er vilje-strengine veike ,
dei legg dei i Fenre-band.

- Usæl er han som aldri
kann segja eit roleg nei,
når lystir dårar og lokkar
og leikar mot tjonings leid.

Viljelaus gjeng han vimrar,
turkar lik stråe av,
sveipt ham i skodd og skuming
driv på det breida hav.

Han vert ein vesall naare
som alle kan sputta på,
ein naaleg skuggesk...nad
den deg uten ein kann sjå.
