Village Blacksmith) 这首诗。
Have you ever stood up in front of your class and recited a poem? When your grandparents and great-grandparents were in school, they may have been required to recite this poem, "The Village Blacksmith," by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
Under a spreading chestnut tree,
The village smithy stands;
The smith, a mighty man is he,
With large and sinewy hands;
And the muscles of his brawny arms
Are strong as iron bands.
Longfellow was born on February 27, 1807, in Portland, Maine. His poetry was very popular in the 19th century, and many of his poems are still familiar today. Have you ever read his poem about Paul Revere's midnight ride on August 18, 1775?
