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
