    Truly a poem timeless poem that transcends time and space. He touches our minds and hearts from another time and place. If that's not immortality I don't know what is. (Report) Reply

    I love this poem. It is a touching and loving tribute to Longfellow's dear and gentle friend. The expression and creativity of Longfellow's beautiful soul has spanned the centuries to touch the heart of the reader in the new millennium. May his light continue to shine into the next century and for all future generations. (Report) Reply

    The beauty and liveliness of the poem are well captured. I love the aesthetic part and make me glued to the lines. Could someone be sharing the same? (Report) Reply

    I think that this poem really describes how something good may not be happening to you, but it is always happening to someone else. The scene is peaceful and quiet, yet vivid with the descriptions. (Report) Reply
