    This line comes from a poem, song, or play. My mom used to say it to me every Christmas Eve. I would love to find the entire work! Here goes: It's Christmas Eve Miltilda Sue so you must sit right here. Tomorrow you will be all new, you will my dolly dear. I have written a note to Santa....
    I don't remember any more, but please let me know if anyone has heard of these lines before. Thanks

    Hi I am looking for a reading or poem for a wedding, the subject is creativity. I am a friend of the bride and will be reading this as part of the non religious service. I would be grateful for any ideas, not sure how long the reading should be but don't want it to be more than 2-3 minutes.

    I am trying to locate a poem I heard when I was younger. I believe it was Ralph Waldo emerson or Henry david thoreau. It spoke about an adults influence on a child is the best gift you can give the world, or something to the effect of 'in the eyes of a child' I know that is very vague, but I would appreciate any help with the title, or any info. Thanks.

    Hi! I wonder if any of you know who wrote a poem entitled 'A Single Night'? On the site I found it, it was written that Rainier Maria Rilke was the author. Personally, I'm not sure about it cause I couldn't find it in any Rilke's poem collecions.I'm enclosing you the whole poem. Perhaps you could help me. I will be very grateful :)

    How shall I hold my soul,
    that it may not be touching yours?
    How shall I lift it then above you
    to where other things are waiting?
    Ah, gladly would I lodge it, all forgot,
    with some lost thing the dark is isolating
    on some remote and silent spot that,
    when your depths vibrate,
    is not itself vibrating.
    You and me - all that lights upon us, though, brings us together like a fiddle bow
    drawing one voice from two strings as it glides along.

    Across what instrument have we been spanned?
    And what violinist holds us in his hand?
    O sweetest song....

    Hi

    I am looking for a poem to send to the mother of my husbands best friend, Paul, who tragically killed himself on 07/07/07. He was only 34 years old and the only son of frank and ann, who are absolutely devastated. I want something that is comforting but not religious. i have been scouring the web but nothing seems appropriate, maybe I am looking for a needle in a haystack. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Karen

    Can anyone help to identify the author of the poem that starts with the following lines: 'Is'nt it strange that princes and kings/ And clowns that caper in sawdust rings'
    Thanks very much

      Vincent, just did a quick search and it appears to be called 'A Bag of Tools' - author unknown. I found it on this site: http: //www.stcolumba1295.co.uk/stories.htm
