    Greetings all,

    Hopefully someone here will be able to help me - I'm looking for a poem, (a gem that I found in a textbook when I was busy at the back of my English class not paying attention,) called 'Eugenisis' by William McIlanney. I've scowered the interwebs but I've had no luck in locating it. Any help would be appreciated.

    I am looking for a poem that I believe is called 'One Less at Home.' I read it at a funeral for my GOdparent's son & was trying to find it for my husband's great-grandmothers funeral. It was long & very meaningful. I had to stop a few times b/c I was crying. Can anyone help?

      Is this it? One less at home! The charmed circle broken-a dear face, Missed day by day from its usual place, But cleansed, saved, perfected by grace, One more in heaven! One less on ea ... more

    Hope you all can help.
    really desperate to find a poem i once read in Daisy Goodwins column(now scrapped) for YOU magazine supplement in the mail on sunday.
    I cant remember any specifics, but the gist was about trying to look on the poitive side of things. That life sometimes turns out ok. That unknown circumstance may just turn out to be fine and that worrying about how things will go wont change the outcomes.Im sure it might have had a line in about a knock on a door, a stranger and a child that was once lost? ? ?

    HELP! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    I'm new and don't know how to add a poem, but I can't find 'The Sheaves' by EA Robinson. Maybe I'm mistaken about the title or author.

    I heard a poem about a month ago, it goes something like this;

    Wear it thin,
    Wear it out,
    Learn to do with less
    Or do without

    I know its old, but can anyone help me find out whom wrote it

      It is usually: Use it up, Wear it out, Make it do, Or do without. I think it is just an old folk saying on frugality - I do not know of an author.

    Can anyone tell me where I can find a funny little poem I saw once, it was about Everybody, Somebody, and Nobody. Everybody thought somebody would do the work but Nobody did. Something like that. I saw it years ago and I would like to post it for my staff at work but don't know where to look.

    I have the following words and would like to know what the poems` title and who the poet is (the words and order could be slightly different) :

    'Drawn from the bubbling fountains,
    filled from the limits main,
    pent in steely heavens,
    clouds in low thunder complain,
    the sheep come bleat bleat, over the road.'

    Thank you,
