Weathering Longfellow's 200th

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was born 200 years ago today. The poet gave us 'Paul Revere's Ride' and 'Hiawatha' and other oft-quoted verse. Now Longfellow's fans are marking his birthday with readings and concerts across the country.

As well, there's a novel effort called 'The Longfellow Poetry Forecast.' WBUR's Andrea Shea delves into the rhyme and reason.
