So this may seem odd, but I am trying to identify the writer of a poem that I may have written. I found the poem in a notebook, I wrote it there and dated it July 2009. What I don't remember is whether I composed it, or simply transcribed it from a book of poetry (which I sometimes do, if I find a poem that moves me) . Normally when I do this, I put the author of the poem next to the title, but I didn't do that in this case.
It's really bothering me, because I like the poem, but don't want to claim it as my own work unless I'm certain.
If any one has heard of this poem or knows the poet, please let me know! I would be very relieved to know someone else wrote it, just to settle the uncertainty in my mind!
The Passing of a Girl
The flowers bloomed so sweetly,
On that April day,
That on which she passeth,
So softly like the wind.
Her brow no longer troubled,
Her hands lay still and calm,
The breath that she had taken,
Was now to be her last.
Oh! – How sweet the calm,
The peace she now contained.
The troubles of life,
Were now so far away.
That body so still and calm –
Had found at last a peace,
That only those before her,
Had e’er the wisdom of.

Does anyone know a few poems that are relatively long, have a good meaning, and are centered on the theme of getting past your losses or maybe a mature poem about loving someone deeply and letting them go because you know it wouldn't work out?Thanks so much!

I have been searching for this poem for over a decade. This site was recommended as THE source for poetry, so I have great hopes!
The poem is about death and how it is like a great tall ship, how it leaves port to wailing and tears of those on shore and how the ship after crossing the horizon is awaited by smiles and cheer by those on 'the other side'. It doesn't reference death at the beginning.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...it is for a dying navy vet who would like it read at his funeral. Thanks.

There is this poem that I fell in love with a few months ago and I can't recall it now. It was a relatively long poem about a girl, written by a man. The girl was promiscuous and eventually killed herself. The man didn't find out until a few months later. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I am looking for a poem that I thought was titled " Dance Alone"
The Author leads you to believe that they are in a controlling relationship and refers to being guided like a horse with reins and goes on to say that over time the rope is starting to frey and they will soon break free from the reins. The last sentence in the poem simply states " and in the end, I will dance alone"
This may not be the title as I cannot locate it anywere on the inetrnet. I was really hoping to find it to give to a friend in need. Hope someone can help!

Can anyone help find a poem that I lost several years ago. It describes that when you meet someone new they have their cloak surrounding them, the cloak gradually slips and bit by bit the true person is revealed. Thank you if you can assist.

Looking for a poem I read once by a male author, relatively long and very reflective/seemingly autobiographical: the poem is about the speaker as a young boy/teenager with a bunch of friends at a gas station or a rest stop or something like that somewhere in the Northeast USA. I think part of the poem is that the speaker has to go back for something or is otherwise separated from his friends. The tone of the poem is that sort of, " Well, we were so young, we didn't really understand life yet" reflection. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am looking for a poem for my husband. It was one his brother liked. He has passed a way and my husband would like to find it if possible. He doesn't know the author but does remember 1 line, the ending. It is " the stallion was blind" It is about a black stallion but I have searched for one with that name and similar ones but have not yet found it. Anyone have any clues?

I work in a large public library and we have an elderly gentleman who is organising his own Humanist funeral ceremony. He is very anxious to trace a poem, the opening lines of which he believes to be 'As I stood on the bridge at the change of seasons...' He is adamant that it is not the similar famous line penned by Longfellow. The poem that he is trying to track down has no religious overtones. We have explored all the usual avenues, including The Poetry Library and the British Humanist Association, and have drawn a resounding blank. Any ideas?
