    I just recently came across a very old copy of this same poem. It was in a box that had been in storage for many, many years! Being one who has written many things over the years. Some of which I do have copyrights for. I fear perhaps of perhaps copying and putting a name on it could be in violation of someone's copyrights? The copy of Tell On Yourself I saw also says author unknown! and the name Jamie Sidwell is not listed on the copy I have either! Perhaps it should of been shown by J Sidwell as author unknown as well? ? (Report) Reply

    My grandmother used to read this to me when I was a small child. I still have the August 1947 print framed and hung on my wall. It is marked Author unknown 1947 (Report) Reply

Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
