Looking For A Poem

Seeking poem about a mountain bear, possibly a grizzly bear, that appeared in a 1953 California public school literature book. Poem described a party climbing a mountain, encountering a lair, and engaging in combat with an infuriated bear. I have been looking for that poem for more than 40 years.

Many years ago I found the poem below but don't recall where or who wrote it - or whether I even have all the right words. I would love some clarification on it please.
I cannot know your hopes and fears
But I can offer through the years
A friendly heart that's always there
To share your gladness or your care
Compassion when the world looks greay
And hope to cheer you on your way
I turn to you and your eyes
I read companionship
You are, my friend.

I remember a poem, vaguely, about a small militia (I think) attacking an army on a mountain (I think) and they were on a narrow path and the army stuck out their spikes or spears or something, and a guy from the militia charged forward, sacrificing himself by impaling himself on the spears or spikes, gathering as many as he could to create a hole in the army's defense so the others could attack. I originally thought it was charge of the light brigade but that wasn't it. Any help would be appreciated, google is useless for such vague searches.....Thanks!

about 30 years ago I heard the cockney duo, Chas and Dave, performing a song possibly based on a monologue.
The recurring line, maybe a chorus was " The Bosun's as deaf as a post" .I have searched high and low but
can't track it down.Any ideas?

I'm hoping someone here can help me.
I read a poem after my mom passed away, yet even after 9 years i never found out who wrote it.
The poem is:
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven,
and bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say " good-bye" .
You were gone before i knew it,
and only God knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you_
no one can ever know.
But now i know you want me,
To mourn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times,
life still has so much in store.
Since you'll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today-
a hollowed place within my heart,
is where you'll always stay.
If anyone knows who wrote this i'd really apreciate it, this poem has meant a lot to me over the years.

Why can't I find anything by Ted Walker on the website?Considering his prominence all I can find is one copy of a 60's publication on Amazon, " Fox on a barn door" priced at £29.00. Can anybody point me in the right direction to find some of his poems on line.

I read this poem to my mother in 1995 as it was given to me in college. It goes like this
when a woman is 18, they don't want to hire her because she doesn't have any experience
when a woman is 20, they don't want to hire her because she is getting married
when a woman is 25, they don't want to hire her because she is wanting to have kids
when a woman is 30, they don't want to hire her because she has several kids and needs to be home with them
when a woman is 35, they don't want to hire her because she is getting too old to start out
when a woman is 40, they don't want to hire her because she will be quitting soon
something like this but written better

I'm looking for a poem studied in GCSE English around 1997. It was short, perhaps 3 or 4 verses, the first half made to be loud or perhaps sung, the second quiet. I seem to remember the word [whisper] in square brackets before the last verse, as though an instruction. For some reason the poet Seamus Heaney has stuck with me, but having searched his poems on the net can find nothing similar yet, although his style seems to fit from what I remember. Many thanks in advance.
