    Hello all,
    I'm looking for a poem that I think may be by either Robert Frost or Robert Service for my dad to read to my grandma who is dying. I remember her reading it to me probably twenty years ago and telling me it was one of her favourites.
    I don't remember any specific lines, just the idea of it.
    It was something about a man looking for god in a church and he wasn't there,
    looking for god in various other places and he wasn't there
    I think maybe a child died?
    And then, at the end the line is maybe " and I saw god" or " and there was god" , or " and saw the face of god" .
    I know this is very vague and I apologize, but if anyone knew what this may be, it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you again,
    Aimee

    " It's a plumber i am and im proud of me trade,

    I am interested in world classic poems even if they are older. The great Italian Poet Dante's Divine comedy is one among them. I likes to read the portions in such enthusiasm and pride in reading classic poems as a poem lover. It is also felt to read the reviews of the poems of classic to understand it well.

    I'm looking for a poem which I read several years ago...some of the lines are: The night has a thousand eyes, the day but one...there's more to this poem and I believe that a lyrical poet named May Delano Rogers wrote it but I can't find any of her poems either.She used to get her poems published in the poetry magazine The Lyricist..

    I am searching for a poem written during the first world war The poet, while on leave, went for a country walk and saw an elderly man ploughing a field with a horse. A large tree had fallen into the field and the ploughman had to plough around it. The poet held a conversation with the farmer and was told that all the young men of the village had gone to war so there was no one left to remove the tree. He went on to explain that the field should have been ploughed a month before and the crop should already be growing and that many from the village would not return to see it harvested. Shortly after this the poet died on the battlefield. any help would be appreciated,

    Please help,
    I've a few lines from a poem I am keen to source;

    " I watched her clip their wings one day,
    she said she'd keep them safe that way" .....
    " And in the night I heard the cry,
    Of wild swans soaring through the sky" ..

    and that's all I can recall. Any ideas?
