The Arrow And The Song

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

I shot an arrow into the air,  [This is the name of the Twilight Zone episode we watched!]

It fell to earth, I knew not where;

For, so swiftly it flew, the sight

Could not follow it in its flight.


I breathed a song into the air,

It fell to earth, I knew not where;

For who has sight so keen and strong,

That it can follow the flight of song?


Long, long afterward, in an oak

I found the arrow, still unbroke;

And the song, from beginning to end,

I found again in the heart of a friend.
