The Song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I don’t usually enjoy poetry, but I found The Song of Hiawatha to be fun to read and kept my attention. The rhythm sounded just like drums beating – dun-dun-dun-DUN-dun-dun-dun-DUN. Sometimes Longfellow used words that emphasized or made the beat stronger. The story itself was excellent. It’s something everyone should read once.
