    I am trying to find the poem, 'My Birthday'.

    The first stanza:

    Beneath the moonlight and the snow
    Lies dead my latest year;
    The winter winds are wailing low
    Its dirges in my ear.

    I think that the poet was John Greenleaf Whitter.

    Thanks for your help in finding it.

    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
