    I'm looking for lyrics actually. I don't know what the song is called so I can't just search it. Some of the lyrics are something like 'wake up' 'superstar' 'hard work' 'get that far'. These are some of the lyrics of the chorus but I can't find it. Any help??

      Maya Angelou did not write that poem. The wrong attribution is a common one, though. The poem is by Carol Wimmer and can be found on her web site, which is under her name.

    Please assist if you can.

    I urgently need to locate the copyright owner of these two poems by Fernando Pessoa, which may be translations from the Portuguese, as I want to use them in a new choral composition.

    I don't have title but the first lines are:

    1. The child with the golden hair
    lies on the crown of the road
    has his guts outside
    and by its' bit of cord
    a train
    and is unaware

    2. The warm wind sweeps the deserted plain
    pierced by two bullets through and through
    he lies there dead and cold.
    Title may be " His mother's very own" .

    Hi PoemHunters

    I am trying to find a poem which was published in the original version of The Mersey Sound in 1967. I cant remember the title but I can remember the the following lines. Daffodils grow in the shadows of your hair. Waterfalls in the hollows of your throat. Your body a bright lake seen between houses catching the early morning sun.

    Does anyone know the title and author of the poem?

      " Some Ghaists Haunt Hooses" by Kate Bone. I do not have the poem, but it can be found in Catherine Kerrigan's book, An Anthology of Scottish Women Poets.

    Looking for a poem I heard in school many years ago that ends something like this: " and in a galaxy far away, a child makes a wish upon the star we loved and threw away"

    I am trying to find a poem, for the program for my Aunt's funeral and all my cousins can remember is the last line is, " if you love me you will lay a yellow rose at my feet, " . I am not able to find this poem. If anyone can help me I would be so happy.

    Hello! Despite numerous online searches, I can't find the author of a particular poem, my partner wants to include it as a reading at their funeral (when such a time eventually transpires) . I managed to find the poem in its' entirety and what I desperately need to know is the title and author. Here it is and thank you in advance:

    " I am in the wind that blows on a bitter cold day.
    I am the sunshine's one and only ray.
    I am in the laughter of every child playing.
    I am in the words that people are saying.
    I am the river roaring so fast.
    I am the line that has just been cast.
    I am the mountain so tall and steep.
    I am the animal that walks and creeps.
    I am in the baby's newborn cry.
    I am the brightest star in the sky.
    I am the song that has just been sung.
    I am gone but my life has just begun.
    I am in the tears of all those who weep.
    I am happy, and that promise I will keep.
    Do not cry for me for I am home,
    Forever in heaven I shall roam.
    Do not cry for me for I am here,
    I'll be with you always, so have no fear."
