Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.
As all good readers know, April is National Poetry Month. We here at The 50 Books Project love poetry, and we'll be blogging about poetry throughout the month. For now, here's a great article on Henry Longfellow, the poet everyone knows but no one (cool) loves, and why that's stupid. Enjoy!
