    I'm looking for a very old poem, believe the name was " Needless Worry" basically about someone worrying about something, then in the end they find that what they were worrying about didn't happen to begin with, so they wasted all that time worrying about nothing.

    hi, can anyone help me trace a poem that my mother used to recite. The tale is of a Glasgow slum child who find herself at the gates of kelvingrove park. She carries a ragged doll who I seem to remember she calls Mary. As the child looks through the park gates she sees lots of nannies pushing prams with very well dressed children. I seem to remember she enter the park saying to her doll " I wonder if yons heaven" . She gets escorted from the park because she chases the ducks. If anyone can help trace this poem I would be most grateful. An internet search has thrown nothing my way!
    I would love to find this for my mothers funeral wake this coming friday, it is a fond memory we have of her reciting it and we referred to the poem as the " Prams in the park"
    Sadly I dont know its proper title.
    with thanks in hope, amanda

      You may be thinking of May Swenson's poem " The Lowering." You can find it on the Poemhunter site.

      The poem is " I Remember, I Remember, " by Thomas Hood. The line is " ...the house where I was born..." rather than " the place."

    'If I can't be the sun, I'll be the brightest star in the sky'
