I had not intended to do any more poetry readings for some time.

But a letter I received from a young person altered my priorities.

No gimmicks in this one; no sound effects, no experimental/alternative interpretations. This is a straight reading of Henry Longfellow's "The Children's Hour." I hope you enjoy.

The text of the poem can be found here:

And the reference to the Bishop of Bingen is explained here:
