Title: Retired sixth grade teacher

Review/comment: We were recently visiting Mystic Seaport, the Museum of America and the Sea, in Mystic, CT. There were many students there on field trips. Some came running into the rope making building while we were reading some of the plaques that explained rope making in the past. They did not stay long enough to answer this question that the teacher had given them, "Who wrote a poem about rope making?" But they left me--a retired sixth grade teacher--determined to find the answer. Finally at the last plaque there was an excerpt from this beautiful poem by Longfellow. I loved what I read and had to look up and read the entire poem. It was especially meaningful having just seen in detail how the ropes were made. I'm left sad that the students were not patient enough or interested enough to spend some more time to learn about the past and to read from this beautiful poem. Hopefully, the teachers have shared it with them in the classroom. I am inspired to read more of the classics. I would highly recommend a trip to Mystic. There is much to see and much to do.
