After more than sixty years portions of this great poem come to mind. I
have always loved poems and when I read them I project my image and my
thoughts into the heart of them, The Raven, by Poe, is another that keeps
repeating in my mind. Being alone with my favorite poems is my way to stay
at peace with the world. Long may they be remembered and read over and over

This poem was brilliant. Longfellow did a good job portraying this viking
that was once a child that enjoyed playing to this fierce pirate who found
love on one of his escapades. THe love for this one woman was his reckoning
as well as the cause for his death.

Dear Bill,

Where do you reside in the United States? From your use of language, I
would assume somewhere south. You sound like someone with a great deal to
say, however, they way in which you say it makes you sound like a retard.
I would recomend that in the future you use proper english. Perhaps that
would help people to take you seriously.
