The Arrow and the Song by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow – Poems for Kids, FreeSchool


You’re watching FreeSchool! 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.
