Henry Longfellow

If not the tedious art
What would I do with my poet's heart
It took me lifetime of accomplishments
But here I am, among the acknowledgements

I travelled  the world far and wide 
All manner of people to study and find 
For I find interest in all diverse 
That informs my experience 
In writing and in verse

For masses I write 
In that I find a great delight
Lyrics of legends may come through
Lyrics for all come to you

I write for all and for your pleasure 
For this generation and others to treasure
Enjoy my verse long after I am gone 
Through time and space my words live on

Adam Prockstem Smith
Carol Longfellow
