The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Pulled Quote

"Efface the footprints in the sands,

And the tide rises, the tide falls."

Ahem...

Do you ever question the end of life? What happens? What does it feel like? What would I see? Yeah you probably did some point in your life, but you probably didn't feel like going out and ending what you started. Near the end of Mr. Longfellow's old-aged life he wrote a poem of beauty and sadness. It may be a sad poem but it is a poem you will never forget. The poem, The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls, should be read by many people.

Summary...

This is a great poem written by a magnificent poet. It's a sad poem, and it's written when Mr. Longfellow was almost at the end of his road. Other than that this poem speaks very loudly.
