Poetry Friday: The Arrow and the Song by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

November 20th, 2009 (06:45 am)
thirsty

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: FlashForward score music

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.

- The Arrow and the Song by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
