    one of the apothegm poems by Friedrich von Schiller in 1796.
    I need its standard English version.
    The title is 'Fountain (od spring?) of Youth'
    The content might be:
    Trust me, it's not the myth:
    There is really a Youth Fountain flowing everlastingly.
    You question me: where is it?
    -It's contained in the poetic arts.

    This is my version. I need expert version.

    I don't know if this is really a 'looking for a poem' subject, but I am currently writing a research paper on Ted Hughes for my senior year of high school. I have looked everywhere, and I cannot find which collections the five poems I chose came from, the poems being 'Wind, ' 'Hawk Roosting, ' 'Bride and Groom Lie Hidden for Three Days, ' 'Tractor, ' and 'The Harvest Moon.' If anyone could let me know where I can find which collections they came from, or if you can let me know the actual collections it would be much appreciated.

    Hi All, I Have searched everywhere for a poem that was read at my Mothers funeral. Unfortunately no one seems to have a copy of it: -(
    I don't have much info, but hopefully someone out there will be able to help me, as my daughter is getting married and would like it read at her wedding in rememberance of her Grandmother. It had something to do with a train or a caboose and the journey you take before you die. Anxiously awaiting responses

    I'm looking for a poem my Grandmother used to recite to me. Can't remember much but it was about the four seasons. She would animate falling leaves, getting covered by a blanket of snow that kept the sleeping flower buds warm until spring. I know that is not much to go on, but if anyone has any ideas - I'd appreciate it. Thank you.

    Anyone seen 'Grace Darling's Deathbed' by Henry Francis Lyte?

    I had this poem in a book that got lost and have looked for it ever since.

    Very poignant poem - describes the heroine's life after the famous rescue and her eventual tragic early death.

    Regards

    i am looking for a poem i think I once saw on Poems on the Underground. The first line is something like 'where love came in I know not how, whether through eye or ear or no'. The last like is something like 'when it [love] leaves it leaves through the heart'. It is quite a short poem, about 10 lines
