An Excerpt from the Song of Hiawatha by Longfellow

The Song of Hiawatha
by Henry W. Longfellow
“Face to face we speak together,
But we cannot speak when absent,
Cannot send our voices from us
To the friends that dwell afar off;
Cannot send a secret message,
But the bearer learns our secret,
May pervert it, may betray it,
May reveal it unto others.”
Thus said Hiawatha,
walkingIn the solitary forest
This excerpt arose out of a
memory I had, of when I read
the Song of Hiawatha
many many years ago and
long before I learnt the meaning
of a friend or of love or of eternity…
I wish you all the best my friend
