The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (oral reading in MP3)

This short poem was written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the most popular American poet in the 19th century. It is about the impermanence of life and the inevitability of death. The refrain "the tide rises, the tide falls" implies that life is a cycle — an idea that somehow offers a ray of hope. 'The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls' was read for Librivox by Rosemarie DeSapio.
