Analysis and comments on The Fire of Drift-wood by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Comment 1 of 1, added on January 24th, 2011 at 12:20 AM.

The flames of a driftwood fire are toxic to nature, just as a relationship
can be after it is over. The fire is beautiful to observe and remember
because of the unique colors that are produced, just as a unique
relationship is a wonderful thing to remember. However dwelling on a lost
relationship is toxic to ones well being just as the flames of a driftwood
fire are toxic to the enviornment and those surrounding it
