The Arrow and the Song. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882). The Arrow and the Song. I shot an arrow in the air, 我 向空中射了一箭， It fell to earth, I knew not where; 它 已落到地面，我不知道其去向； For so swiftly it flew, the sight 因 它飞得如此地快速 Could not follow it in its flight . 视力无法跟得上它的飞驰 。.

I shot an arrow in the air,
This poem reminds me of a song which says, when you forget it , still I remember it. Sometimes we say something, or we do something, and after a long time, when even it is forgot by ourselves, we would find out, surprisingly, that it is still remembered by our friends. Only a true friend can be like this. Ones who love others shall be loved by others. We get friends by giving, and we always get moved by friendship.
