      You have the poet (Byron) right, but the line is from a different poem, " Lines Inscribed Upon a Cup Formed by a Skull."

    I remember reading this back in 1981 and have never forgotten it, however I don't know who wrote it. Can someone identify it?

    I have so little sorrow
    All them blues
    That followed me for so long
    Have gone on off somewhere else
    To drive another woman almost mad
    The sun shines at my back door
    Birds sing outside my window
    And although this is the city and the tears that marked my face
    Have dyed my skin a deeper hue
    A color full of blood and yearning
    I have so little sorrow
    All them blues
    Them bad bad blues
    Have gone on off
    Somewhere else
    To drive another woman almost mad

    Anyone know the Yates poem that has the lines in it...........I spread my dreams under your feet, tread softly for you tread on my dreams. They are the only lines I know.

      Emily Dickinson did write " There Is No Frigate Like a Book, " which carries the message, but the question is whether it would be meaningful to your sister.

    Looking for a very instructive poem about different birds nesting habits. (written for children, I think about 1930-40) . It begins -
    There was a bird who did not know
    Where to build a nest, and so
    The other birds................

    This poem I'm looking for is about death, and the final lines are something very roughly along the lines of " you've gone to bed, I'll stay a little while longer to tend the embers of the fire that still burn" .
    Any ideas gratefully received!

    I remember this poem my sister found when we were in high school. I would like to find out the name of it and who wrote it.

    Never fall in love my friend, you'll see it does not pay. Although it causes broken hearts, it happens everyday.
    You wonder where he is at night, and if he's being true. One day you're feeling happy, the next you're feeling blue.
    The price you pay if very high, if I could choose from life or death, I think I'd rather die.
    So you see my friend, don't fall in love, you; ll get hurt before you're through.
    You see my friend, I ought to know. I fell in love with you.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! This was back in the 80's if that helps at all. Thanks.
