“Checkouts” For 8th Grade

Posted: September 16, 2015 in Home

8th grade: Here is the passage by Longfellow that seems to reflect this story. Read it, think about the story, and decide why I’ve chosen this passage. Comment below to let me know you’re reading!

“Ships that pass in the night and speak each other in passing; Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness; So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another; Only a look and a voice; then darkness again and a silence.
–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

What are your thoughts? Comment below. How does this quote reflect the story?
