A nice post, Pat. Moonlight Sonata is one of my favorites, as is Longfellow. I don't remember seeing this poem before.

Sam: I always remember MTL and I having dinner at a pub in the Yorkshire Dales and when we came out the ground was covered in icy snow, the river running by and the moonlight. I'll never forget it.
