The Biography

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow by Thomas Wentworth Higginson


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the author of The Three Kings, is one of the most famous American poets of all time.

In 1877 he wrote the poem, The Three Kings to tell the story of the wise men traveling to meet Jesus at his birth. The wise men are a wonderful model of worship to share with our children, especially at Christmastime.

What I love about this poem was that Longfellow adds some of his own imaginative details, speculating at parts of the story and adding humanity to the nameless Wise Men. Like, having them nod off as they rode on their long journey to Bethlehem.

But, he also closely follows the nativity story. So much so, that I chose to share this Christmas poem with my kids so we could purposefully connect it to the actual accounts in the gospel record.

"I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" is a Christmas carol based on the 1863 poem "Christmas Bells" by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The song tells of the narrator's despair, upon hearing Christmas bells during the American Civil War, that "hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth, good will to men". The carol concludes with the bells carrying renewed hope for peace among men.

Longfellow wrote the poem on Christmas Day in 1863. "Christmas Bells" was first published in February 1865, in Our Young Folks, a juvenile magazine published by Ticknor and Fields. References to the Civil War are prevalent in some of the verses that are not commonly sung. “Christmas Bells”—the basis for the popular Christmas carol.
