Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad. ( Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ) . . . We fear the thorns and fail to know the flowers. #montana #glaciernationalpark #nationalparks #hiking #thelittleprince #henrywadsworthlongfellow #thorns #secret #explore #keepmewild

It's #PoetsDay! Today, we're pairing select poems with images from the #HRMCollections. This excerpt from "The Galaxy," a poem by #HenryWadsworthLongfellow, could be describing our own #MilkyWay. These #Stargazers, featured in a photograph from the #HRMCollections, could be looking for just that. "Torrent of light and river of the air,
Along whose bed the glimmering stars are seen
Like gold and silver sands in some ravine
Where mountain streams have left their channels bare!" Do you have your own favorite astronomy-related poem? Share it with us in the comments.

Poetry has been around for millennia, from the epic poems of #Homer to those closer to home, like this excerpt from #HenryWadsworthLongfellow's "In the Churchyard at Tarrytown." "Here lies the gentle humorist, who died In the bright Indian Summer of his fame! A simple stone, with but a date and name, Marks his secluded resting-place beside
The river that he loved and glorified." To celebrate #PoetsDay, we've paired this poem with a haunting work from our collection, #RenataRainer's "Marble Well (Lyndhurst)," 1981. Fittingly, this photograph was shot on the grounds of #Lyndhurst, another noted #Tarrytown landmark.

Age is opportunity no less,
Than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away,
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Morituri Salutamus


My little one is not so little anymore.

“Seaweed” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1845. 🖌🖌🖌
(Excerpt)
✒️✒️✒️
“From the strong Will, and the Endeavor
That forever
Wrestle with the tides of Fate
From the wreck of Hopes far – scattered,
Tempest shattered,
Floating waste and desolate;- Ever drifting, drifting, drifting
On the shifting
Currents of the restless heart;
Till at length in books recorded,
They, like hoarded
Household words, no more depart.”

Today is #PoetsDay! To celebrate, we're pairing select poems with images from the #HRMCollections, like this excerpt from "The Light of Stars," a poem by #HenryWadsworthLongfellow and this postcard of a nighttime scene of #PhilipseManorHall in #Yonkers. "The night is come, but not too soon; And sinking silently,
All silently, the little moon Drops down behind the sky.
There is no light in earth or heaven But the cold light of stars;
And the first watch of night is given To the red planet Mars." Do you have your own favorite astronomy-related poem? Share it with us in the comments. #Stars #Mars #Poems #Poetry #Night

My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me. — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ⚓️ @captainsrest

"Sunday is the golden clasp that binds together the volume of the week."
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
----------------------- So not long after this we left, sigh . . . We would of liked to stay all afternoon, it was so nice up there at the Adams' Pack Station Barnyard Jamboree . . . You can hear the Wild Mountain Mystics playing in the background . . . It was a good hike with Lori-girl (we hiked about 7 miles), hiked up Lower Winter Creek Trail, stopped at Hoegees Campground and had a snack, before hiking out Upper Winter Creek Trail—and we finished our hike about 1145ish, just in time to hear the Jamboree begin and I bought a book about the Big Santa Anita Canyon at the Store there, and a T-shirt (and a bandana and a patch) and we ate a delicious Cheeseburger and it was just a lovely way to spend a Sunday . . . We are always so grateful to be able to hike up there in Chantry Flat Recreation Area in the Big Santa Anita Canyon and then also this day, to spend part of the afternoon at Adams' Pack Station . . .

La prominenza rocciosa si protende in mare aperto,
sulla punta estrema, distanti alcuni chilometri,
il faro innalza la sua muratura massiccia:
un pilastro luminoso di notte, nebuloso di giorno.
(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

“ Tell me not, in mournful numbers, Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they seem.
Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest, Was not spoken of the soul.
Not enjoyment, and not sorrow, Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each to-morrow Find us farther than to-day.
Art is long, and Time is fleeting, And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating Funeral marches to the grave. ...” A Psalm of Life BY HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW
