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.
