To Hiwatha, his friends were very special to him. His two friends were good
at different types of things and he had singled them out from all the
others. Chibiabos was the musician and Kwasind was the strong man. He says
that he singled them out from all the others and that straight between them
ran a pathway. Yet, there was no grass that grew on the path. At first in
the poem, you sense a sort of happy tone from Henry while he was describing
Hiawatha’s friends and how much they meant to him. But later on, it get’s
sort of intense when Kwasind dives under the water to save the beaver. It
creates a suspense and leaves you and Hiawatha and Chibiabos wondering if
he’s alive or not. Then, Kwasind comes bursting out of the water with the
beaver on his shoulder. Then the tone of the poem changes again back into a
sort of joyful poem. I think that this poem was wrote to show Hiawatha’s
love for his friends and how heroic and different they were, and the fact
that they’re bond to each other was so strong that nothing could ever keep
them apart.

The poem is a very interesting poem. The poem is telling about his
friendship with his friends. He said that they enjoyed joy and sorrow
together no matter what. Longfellow also said that nothing could make them
have an ill friendship. The end of this poem is very interesting because it
talks about him diving under the water to save a beaver. He was down there
for so long that his friends thought he was dead, but he triumphantly came
above the water with the dead beaver glistening on his shoulders. I think
this poem is very touching because it is a poem about a couple of friends
that go through joy and sorrow together. These friends cannot be separated
no matter what happens, even if it is something upsetting or bad.

I thought that the poem about Hiawatha and his friends was very interesting
to me, because for me it turned out to be a story packed into a poem, which
I thought was very nice. In my perspective, I thought the poem had a very
special theme to it and I thought it was that best friends always stick
together and have their backs. The tone for me was deep and still very
gentle, which I really like in a poem. This poem teaches many things about
life and how you should act and be throughout your life. I have to say that
this has been the longest poem I have ever read in my life, but it was one
of the best poems I have read in my life too! I am glad I had a chance to
read one of his poems, and to get to know how it felt like to be Hiawatha.
I really enjoyed reading Hiawatha's Friends.
