  • Poem: The Midnight Ride Of Paul Revere by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
    So through the night rode Paul Revere.
    And so through the night went his cry' of alarm
    To every Middlesex village and farm
    A cry of defiance, and not of fear,
    A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door,
    And a word that shall echo forever more!
    For, borne on the nightwind of the Past,
    Through all our history, to the last,
    In the hour of darkness and peril and need,
    The people will waken and listen to hear
    The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed,
    And the midnight message of Paul Revere.
