observe watered down information, something like bla bla bla, but not here
to my deep surprise. It makes me happy..!

I read this poem the first time in my high scool's library, several years
ago.
Weirdly, although I forgot the name of the poet, the last words remind in
my mind, like a litany, and comed with me though the years, supporting me.

"know how sublime a thing it is
To suffer and be strong"
They make me stronger, make me feel that sadness, sorrow and beauty can be
gather in a sublime song, which wafts the soft whisper of human melancholia
though the ages.

I love the allusion to Greek mythology that Longfellow uses in this poem.
The thought of the planet/God Mars being supportive of a lowly human being
is a stirring reflection of the belief in divine guidance through
intuition. It's a very lyrical poem, and Longfellow is a master at painting
pictures with words.
