    I'm looking for the poem which was in the movie '4 Weddings and a Funeral' with Hugh Grant. It was the poem the young man read/recited at the funeral - one of the lines was something about 'My Sunday Best'. Any assistance would be so appreciated.

    I am looking for the complete poem which I think was entitled 'Celebration of a Tree'. It contains the following lines:

    I bow before your boughs, oh mighty tree,
    I open my heart to your heartwood.
    I rejoice in the soil of your soul;
    In the soul of your soil.
    Each of your leaf veins mirroring the veins in my leaf hand
    (For I am a yewman being as well as a human being...)

    It was on a poetry site a few years ago and I think it was an Irish website. I've been trying for years to find it again with no luck.

    HI, This may sound crazy but I am looking for a poem that was on a poster from Spencers gifts. It was maybe 20 years ago..just curious to know if anyone heard of it...I cant remember the whole thing but what I do remember is... '''''Every moment that we are together, I am learning something, and knowledge becomes a permanent part of me. Even though my feelings will be different a year from now or ten years from now part of the difference is you'''''....Thats all I remember..anybody have a clue? ? ? ? ?

    Hi Everyone,

    i'm looking for a short, maybe one stanza, poem by a man. It had something to do with holding hands and walk through forests and trees and sand. The last line was something like 'and if he lets me, i'll hold it after death.' I read it in a cooking magazine once, it was engraved on some type of frame that you ordered. Please help, I want it for me wedding, but I can't find it! Thanks!

    Hi everyone,
    i'm looking for a poem, well actually it's a short one, that I saw in a cooking magazine once. It was written on some kind of frame that you send away for. Anyways it had something to do with holding hands and walking through forests and trees and having that person's hand after death. I would really like to use it for my wedding, but I can't find the magazine again! PLEASE HELP! ! ! !

    I am looking for a poem on fallen soldier, wherein it is beautifully narrated that the decisions the soldier took that led to his death was influenced by all the people he has met in his life.
