    Longfellow at his best. This is masterpiece - beautiful, stunning, marvelous, breath-taking; with a rhyme and rhythm that sounds like melody from the heavens upon mortal eyes and ears.

    Cannot define how I feel at reading this. But it inspires the wayward poet in me to write on.

    May his verses continue to enlighten beautiful souls.

    I have a fondness for verses that flow so melodiously, for words that paint wonderful scenery, for a heart that loves those around him, , for all that is good in poetry. (Report) Reply
