in the round.tower of my heart

My class has just begun our Poetry unit. .. while also preparing for state testing.
It just so happens that one of the writing prompts was this beautiful poem by Longfellow.
: each line.
: takes my breath away.

While I read it to the class in preparation for them to respond, I noticed one boy smiling and chuckling sincerely at certain lines. 

It was one of the most precious things I have seen all year long.
here is the poem in its entirety to read at your own pace.
