Interior page from
The Children's Hour
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Illustrated by Glenna Lang

David R. Godine, Publisher

Text for interior page:
"And there will I keep you forever,
Yes, forever and a day,
Till the walls shall crumble to ruin,
And moulder in dust away!"

Reviews:
From Publisher's Weekly:
"One of Longfellow's best-known poems, a loving tribute to his three young daughters…. Clean-cut illustrations gleam with light as they capture the poem's playful spirit and highlight a father's tenderness toward his mischievous offspring."

From the New York Times Book Review:
"The illustrations to this edition of Longfellow's charming poem show 'grave Alice, and laughing Allegra, and Edith with golden hair' in a pretty and happy Victorian home."
