    Im looking for a poem i heard years ago, it is about a boy who is drunk, and is with a girl, and tries to go farther than she wanted, and he gets mad and drives wrecklessly. He then gets in an accident, and i think it was the boy who regains consciousness and finds out the people in the other car were one of their parents. Forgive the vague details, as it has been many years. Thanks for your time.

    Like many others I am seeking a poem for a memorial service. I have searched 114 poems of Henry VanDyke, the poet but cannot locate his beautiful allusion to a ship sailing away. The last line refers to the far shore and people there saying 'her she comes'. I think this is a commonly used poem on funeral bulletins.

      'Night Esemble' by A.L.Breitling. It is all worked out for voices. I think 6 levels. Brilliant. I will contact the executors of her estate and see if they can post it here.

    I have a friend's funeral to attend tomorrow and I would really like to find a poem either to read or to put in a card. Can anyone suggest an alternative to the classic 'Stop all the clocks'...?

      I think this is quite lovely and filled with meaning: Parable of Immortality I am standing by the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for th ... more
