Paul Revere’s Ride
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1860.
"LISTEN, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year."
Patriots' Day: a call for all American citizens to step up and pay their taxes without cheating, with gratitude for bravery of the patriots who served before us and all opportunities and blessings.
... And the running of the Boston Marathon!
