The Cross of Snow By henry wadsworth longfellow

Poem Summary

  • In the long, sleepless night
  • A face of a ghost appears
  • Looks at them from the wall
  • The lamp cast shadows
  • She died in his room and haunts it
  • She was sacrificed to fire
  • It is rare and isn't heard of
  • Life is a blessing
  • They can see a mountain in the distance
  • The sun never reaches the surface in some areas
  • A gravestone in the shape of a cross with snow on it
  • He wears a cross necklace over his chest
  • He was with her for 18 changing years
  • The world stopped when she died

The cross and the mountain add visual imagery. This adds detail and makes it more realistic.
