    I'm looking for 3 poems:
    The first one is about an elderly lady whose children keep promising to come and visit her, but keep putting it off because they don't have time. Thought it was by Christina Rossetti but can't find it in collected works so think poet might be someone else.
    The second was at the end of a British film i saw years ago. Think film was about a teacher who used to take mentally handicapped children running. The only line I can remember was about 'running through the broad bright land'
    The third is called 'The Lost Heifer', by an Irish poet I think. Don't know any of the words but would love to get it for a friend who mentioned it.

    I am looking for a humorous poem concerning the nose. I would compare it to 'To A Louse' by Robert Burns nd I believe from that era. It concerns different types of nose as well as different ways of blowing your nose. Some people open the tissue and look at it like a jewel.

    I'm looking for two poems, I believe by Santanya.
    First one contains '...with images you tended under foreign skies, far away from your own land.'
    Second one contains '...this column has a hole. Have you seen the queen of the dead? '

    Many thanks.
