Looked it up for my son. It is my favorite poem from my school days.
Memorized it in 7th grade.

Iknow this sounds crazy, but, as comment 81 stated, i found this in a
memory book my mother did for my daughter. She passed away in Feb. of this
year and I also wish I could ask her why she liked it so much. I really
enjoyed it, though.

I just found a memory book "To my Daugter With Love" in it my mother wrote
the the Village Blacksmith was her favorite poem. I think that is a
wonderful poem about living a good and honest life. My mom died a year
ago, I wish she was here to tell me why she liked this poem so much.

The forging and farriery I've done has been good honest work. Reading The
Village Blacksmith brough wetness to my eyes. I will take a copy with me
tomorrow for folks to read while others try my forge and anvil. Thank you
for having the peom available.

this poem was written about the village smithy from the small town i grew
up in and live in now. its a beautiful peaceful place called Hiram on the
Saco river in the foothills. I do believe i know the hill and the spot he
is speaking of the smithy working. his grandfather settled this town and
its widely roomer d that it was written here.

I went to a one room country school, in Oklahoma, from 1932 to 1938; when
in the 7th grade I memorized this poem.

This is an especially cool poem because not only is it beautiful, but it
relates directly to his life because as a child, Longfellow loved to watch
the Village Blacksmith work.
