- The Village Blacksmith Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth$11.00
Half a century ago a blacksmith's shop, of the old New England village type, stood in Brattle street, Cambridge, not far far from Longfellow's home. Hundreds of passers-by glanced at the low roof, the grimy smith at his forge, the gazing children at the door, and went their way without giving them a second thought. Not so the poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. He saw love, sorrow, the patience of hope, the strength of duty, all the beauty and tragedy of earnest human loving. The smith and smithy, the sheltering tree, the loitering children, poet and passers-by, alike are gone but it's pictures do not fade and its lessons do not grow old. The Village Blacksmith by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow captures this life with its strength and beauty.
