Having listened the day long to the ceaseless rolling whisper of the waves here in Naples, is it any wonder that the poem, thus named and written by Longfellow, should become affixed in my mind? A further wonder is the fact that I studied it 50 years ago in Ms. Reichert’s Del-Val English class. Ah, the power of well-chosen words !
Do yourself the favor of googling The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. It’s very brief, but see if the verses don’t have you feeling the rhythm of the waves.
