    He's my favorite poet. The Psalm of Life is one of my favorite poems and is also one of the first poems I read.

    How sorrowful the story about Fanny's death and Longfellow's subsequent depression. He penned beautiful poetry while suffering emotionally long after her passing.

    Force rules the world still,
    Has ruled it, shall rule it;
    Meekness is weakness,

    Over the whole earth
    Still is it Thor's-Day!

Best Poem of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.

Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each to-morrow
Find us farther than to-day.

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave.

Hiawatha's Fasting


You shall hear how Hiawatha
Prayed and fasted in the forest,

Not for triumphs in the battle,
And renown among the warriors,
But for profit of the people,
For advantage of the nations.
