The Arrow and the Song

I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

  1. I adore your photo, Hanna — and the poem as well! The last person who sent it to me was a lovely lady in China I met through eBay. And now you … How very international, yes? 🙂 What a privilege it is to live in an age when we can make friends around the world. My very best to you!

    • Hi there, Heather. You heard my song 🙂 That’s truly vivifying. Luckily we newer know for sure where our road might lead us or end for that matter.
      eBay, China and the poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, that’s a lovely story ❤
      All the best,

    • Es posible disfrutar de un paseo hasta allí, Isabel. La fauna tiene buenas condiciones el paisaje es hermoso, tranquilo y el aire está limpio.
      Un abrazo,
