Inscribed: “And the song from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend” with Henry W. Longfellow's signature. These are the two concluding lines from Longfellow's poem The Arrow and the Song, a three-stanza poem composed of four lines or quatrains in each stanza. Longfellow was one of the most widely known and best-loved American poets of the 19th C. His extensive works include Paul Revere's Ride, The Song of Hiawatha and Evangeline. He had a remarkably productive and influential literary career teaching at Bowdoin College and then at Harvard University while continuing to publish throughout his life.

The complete poem:
I shot an arrow into the air,
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.
