    And now, beset with many ills, A toilsome life I follow; Compelled to carry from the hills These logs to the impatient mills Below there in the hollow. Longfellow used his pen to pay tribute to numerous historical figures and many other authors including William Shakespeare --"Poet paramount, Whom all the Muses loved", John Keats --"Here lieth one whose name, Was writ in water. The thoughts of men shall be As sentinels to keep Your rest from danger free. The green trees whispered low and mild; It was a sound of joy!

    Would, the sins that thou abhorrest, O Soul! Spake full well, in language quaint and olden, One who dwelleth by the castled Rhine, When he called the flowers, so blue and golden, Stars, that in earth's firmament do shine. Then o'er the vale, with gentle swell, The music of the village bell Came sweetly to the echo-giving hills; And the wild horn, whose voice the woodland fills, Was ringing to the merry shout, That faint and far the glen sent out, Where, answering to the sudden shot, thin smoke, Through thick-leaved branches, from the dingle broke. And the nuns' sweet hymn was heard the while, Sung low, in the dim, mysterious aisle.

    Dost thou not know that what is best In this too restless world is rest From over-work and worry? O holy Night! The veil of cloud was lifted, and below Glowed the rich valley, and the river's flow Was darkened by the forest's shade, Or glistened in the white cascade; Where upward, in the mellow blush of day, The noisy bittern wheeled his spiral way. This is book on my Kindle, but my daughter is using her American Literature book to read several of his poems. And the Poet, faithful and far-seeing, Sees, alike in stars and flowers, a part Of the self-same, universal being, Which is throbbing in his brain and heart.

I lay upon the ground; His hoary arms uplifted he, And all the broad leaves over me Clapped their little hands in glee, With one continuous sound ; -- A slumberous sound, a sound that brings The feelings of a dream, As of innumerable wings, As, when a bell no longer swings, Faint the hollow murmur rings O'er meadow, lake, and stream.
