From the book:THIS is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks, Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight, Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic, Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms. Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest. This is the forest primeval; but where are the hearts that beneath it Leaped like the roe, when he hears in the woodland the voice of the huntsman? Where is the thatch-roofed village, the home of Acadian farmers, - Men whose lives glided on like rivers that water the woodlands, Darkened by shadows of earth, but reflecting an image of heaven? Waste are those pleasant farms, and the farmers forever departed! Scattered like dust and leaves, when the mighty blasts of October Seize them, and whirl them aloft, and sprinkle them far o'er the ocean. Naught but tradition remains of the beautiful village of Grand-Pre. Ye who believe in affection that hopes, and endures, and is patient, Ye who believe in the beauty and strength of woman's devotion, List to the mournful tradition still sung by the pines of the forest; List to a Tale of Love in Acadie, home of the happy.

Longfellow's work was loosely based on the 1755 expulsion of the Acadians from Nova Scotia (known as Le Grand Dérangement ), the arrival of some of those Acadians in south Louisiana - and their efforts to find loved ones from whom they were separated. In the poem, an Acadian maiden named Evangeline Bellefontaine is torn from her lover, Gabriel Lajeunesse, on their wedding day. With a group of fellow exiles, she travels to Louisiana via the Mississippi River . Once in Louisiana, Evangeline learns that Gabriel already had arrived there, but departed for the Ozarks . She leaves to search for him, finding Gabriel by chance years later on his deathbed in a Philadelphia almshouse. Gabriel dies as they embrace, and Evangeline follows soon after; they are buried together in nameless graves in the heart of Philadelphia.
