The Song of Hiawatha

Cora LV Hatch at age 16 had already received and published her own book on poems when she was asked by Longfellow's brother while attending her Spirit circle, to assist his brother Henry. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, also very mediumistic, received from the spirit world his epic poem: THE SONG of HIAWATHA. Henry, was having trouble receiving the conclusion of the poem from the spirit world and Cora was able to assist while in trance. Bringing Henry's poem to completion for publication later in the same year, 1856.

The stranger at my fireside cannot see
The forms I see, nor hear the sounds I hear;
He but perceives what is; while unto me
All that has been is visible and clear.

The spirit-world around this world of sense
Floats like an atmosphere, and everywhere
Wafts thro' these earthly mists and vapors dense
A vital breath of more ethereal air.

So prone the world of spirits there descends
A bridge of light connecting it with this,
O'er whose unsteady floor, that sways and bends,
Wander our thoughts above the dark abyss.
