      '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'm looking for a poem I learned in Jr. High School. Here is what I can remember.
    did you know that God above created you for me to love, he picked you out from all the rest because he knew i'd love you best. I had a heart and it was true but know it's gone from me to you, so take care of it as I have done for you have two and I have none. If you are not there of judgment day I'll know youve gone the other way. I give the angels back their wings, golden harps and other things. Just to show you what I'd do I'd even go to hell for you.
    I know this is not correct in all but it is what I can remember. Please help. Thanks.

    A long time ago at school I was taught a peom which I am almost certain began with 'The rivers of England if you please.' Can anyone help me to find this complete poem?

    I've heard this great poem, or kind of a message. I know the basic meaning or outline of it but i cant get the wording right.

    It talked about 3 steps to mastery i think. The first step was that before you begin, you know what it is but you dont notice it and arent completely aware of it, the second step is when you begin to learn- you look intently at it or study intently and hard, the third and last step was that you go back to not being completely aware of it because youve mastered it, it becomes a part of you, a habit or a reflex, not something that you need to focus on.

    Does anyone know this poems name or the exact wording for it?
