"Blessing The Cornfields" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was quite
impressive to me. First of all, I was awed by its length. While I read this
long poem, I feel like watching a spectacular movie. Longfellow describes
the scenery of the valuable cornfields of the Indians vividly. I can see
what the cornfileds mean to the Indians in the poem. He also expresses how
much the birds and insects want the Indians' corns in spite of all the
The seasonal time in this poem changes from spring to summer. In summer,
Indians are ready for harvesting their symbol of victory.
In the beginning, the conflict for winning the corns started between the
Indians and especially crows. During the struggle, the poet shows how hard
both sides try to achieve their goal. In the ending, the victory goes to
the Indians.
This poem comes from ordinary themes, but it attains the very best
essence in our life, which is appealing to ordinary people's mind very
strongly. This conflict between humans and animals can be compared to the
everyday conflict in our daily life. I mean it also can be applied to our
simple daily life competition although the poet writes this poem from the
historical facts of American Indians.

By just looking at the poem, I thought it wasn't going to be good because
it was pretty long. After I read it though, I realized that it was really
good although it was long. I realized that quantity didn't matter, but
quality did. I liked the way that he talked about the cornfields, and I
also liked the way he described it, and also the way he talked about the
crows trying to attack the fields. I think that the tone of the poem was
happy in the beginning, but towards the end of the middle section, until
the actual end of the poem, it was more of a serious tone. This was a
really good poem written by Henry Longfellow.

I think that the poem has good tone and texture to the writer. I think that
the poemd describes the setting. I really like the poem.
