    I am making a scrapbook for my niecess 18th bithday, and i was looking for a poem to use as a cover note- she is very jolly, full of life and i would like a poem to reflect her personality but not too 'deep'...can any one help? ?

    thanks

    Hey,
    I heard a poem about a month ago, it goes something like this;

    Wear it thin,
    Wear it out,
    Learn to do with less
    Or do without

    I know its old, but can anyone help me find out whom wrote it

      It is usually: Use it up, Wear it out, Make it do, Or do without. I think it is just an old folk saying on frugality - I do not know of an author.

    Can anyone tell me where I can find a funny little poem I saw once, it was about Everybody, Somebody, and Nobody. Everybody thought somebody would do the work but Nobody did. Something like that. I saw it years ago and I would like to post it for my staff at work but don't know where to look.
    Appreciated

    I have the following words and would like to know what the poems` title and who the poet is (the words and order could be slightly different) :

    'Drawn from the bubbling fountains,
    filled from the limits main,
    pent in steely heavens,
    clouds in low thunder complain,
    the sheep come bleat bleat, over the road.'

    Thank you,
    Sincerely,
    Stephan.

    I once read a poem called simply 'you'. I thought I remembered it being one of Rudyard Kipling's but, equally, I remembered it being written Anon. Can anyone help in identification and, more especially, with the words?

      All I can tell you is that it is not Kipling, whose complete poems are at: http: //www.poetryloverspage.com/poets/kipling/kipling_ind.html
