    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

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
