Looking For A Poem

I am looking for a special reading for my wedding. I once saw Billy Collins and heard him read a poem about walking his dog and going past a pond where he counted the swans, knowing that if there was an uneven number, one of them would have lost a mate, since swans mate for life. I can not find this poem anywhere. Please help!

I found a poem once and it was an anonymous poem which makes it all the more harder to find. It was this woman and she was reflecting on all these times she had with her boyfriend. She talked about how she expected his reaction to be one way and he always surprised her but then at the end it surprises you by saying he went to Vietnam and never came back. It's a wonderful poem and I was just wondering if anyone had ever heard of it and could send me a copy.

There is a poem that my husband's 91 year old grandmother always quotes a portion of to me. She was in the hosptital in the late 40's after giving birth to my mother-in-law. She was a breech baby and the doctor quoted a poem about lazy babys coming into the world sitting down. She can only remember this one line but I would love to give her the entire poem. Can anyone help?

Poems thine eternal verses,
To serve and save the mind;
Bringing new twilight to find.
I pray for the soul's peace to acquire, to aspire in 'tis universe.
The blessing thro' which I sing,
To guide others, to ride towards eternal carnival.
God Bless you, all Poets, Savants, all soul to coalesce.

I am looking for a poem written by Charles Chaplin (the actor) . I don't know the name of the poem. It is about friendship and what we look on a friend. If anyone knows it, could you please send it to me or tell me the name of it.
Thank you so much!

I'm looking for a poem I read in the New Yorker, in early 2002. I can't remember much about it, other than that I loved it. I think the author's name was something like Anthony Walton? Help!

I read a poem in college that I can't seem to remember correctly. I know it's American, probably from the turn of the century, and that it was pretty angst-y about the American condition. The only lines I can vaguely remember (probably incorrectly) are:
...gray skies stretch (arch?) over us
and we are all alone.
Anyone got any ideas?

It talks about a child thinking their parents or (father) is perfect when they are young, then through adolescence thinking the total opposite, then as an adult respecting them (or him)
