The song of Hiawatha is a poem I read as a young boy and loved instantly. The rhythm of it, trochaic tetrameter, stayed with me after reading and echoed in my  boyish mind sometimes for hours after.
I plan on setting aside some quiet moments and reading it again in full.
Here it is on-line at the author Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s website.
