郎费罗 (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow) 生于1807227

你是否曾经站在全班同学面前背诗呢?从前你的祖父母与曾祖父母在念书时,他们或许就得背出郎费罗写的「乡村铁匠」 (The Village Blacksmith) 这首诗。


郎费罗于1807227日出生在缅因州的波特兰。他的诗在19世纪时相当受到欢迎,其中有许多首诗到了今日仍然广为人知。你有没有读过他那首有关保罗里维尔 (Paul Revere) 于1775818日午夜快骑的诗呢?

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?
