Photo: Longfellow Decked Out for the Holidays (Corey Templeton)

 

Photographer Corey Templeton captured a festive Henry Wadsworth Longfellow statue in Portland’s Longfellow Square yesterday.  In his poem “Christmas Bells,” Longfellow, Portland native and a member of the Bowdoin Class of 1825, wrote some of the most memorable lines about the holiday that remain in our vernacular still.
