(By The Fireside: The Singers by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.) ...

An Iambic tetrameter poem, by the Bostonian poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The verse contains two flaws. 1) In S1L4 (Stanza 1, Line 4) , the word Heaven must be pronounced as Heav'n and 2) In S2L3, the word wandered, as wander'd in order to maintain the Iambic tetrameter flow immaculate.
