From the front windows on the second floor of the Longfellow house in
Cambridge you can see the Charles River. Actually, the land from the
Longfellow House at 105 Brattle Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts
all belonged to the Longfellows. The US Park Service has kept it all
open. The trees are taller but you can see how the view to the Charles
River would have been inspirational. Given the amount of life in the house
with six children and the early untimely tragic death of his wife when the
youngest daughter was only 5 years old, the sensitivity in the poem is
remarkable. This poem and the one about the Old Clock on the Stairs gives
us an idea of how Longfellow wrote about life, death and the details of
daily life we often miss today. Give yourself a treat and visit this
remarkable Historic Site, take a tour with the park rangers and listen to
them recite Longfellow poems as you stand in this place of American
literary history. More information can be obtained from the Longfellow
House History and Guide from www.eParks.com
