years ago my grandmother had a framed poem intitled Nuttin'
it had several versed and part of the poem went sorta like,
Don't have nuttin'
don't need nuttin'
Don't want nuttin'
Wondering if anyone can tell me who wrote it and where I can get a copy of it.

I need your help in finding a poem I read in highschool. I have never been able to forget the meaning of it, though all else is forgotten! My old English teacher is dead, so I can't ask him...
It's about time. How time/the world stops when I am not there. Especially I remember that locking the gate to the playground stops time as I am not there. It's a bit hard to explain but the playground is there.
Can you help?Thank you!

Hi, I'm looking for a poem / ballad that my 90 year old grandmother used to recite to her children. She also recited Robert Service so could be a similar vintage. Here's what my mother recalls of the story line together with a few actual lines from the poem she recalls. If anyone knows where I could locate the entire poem, author, or name of the poem, it would be most appreciated! My grandmother cannot recall it now. Thank you!
Railroad guys come upon a mound of clay
An old man comes out of his house/shack and says
I see the railroad drawing near
I'm mighty glad to see it
But then he tells them a story
He and his young bride decided to move out west
She begged and pleaded to come with him
He tried his very best to discourage her
but wanted her to come
They saddled up and moved out west
She made it through the summer and the warm, warm days of fall
As winter approached she seemed to whiten with it and thought I didn't know
She tells him she's going to take a couple days of rest
He goes for the doctor, she says its for the best
He saddles up the horse, the wind started to blow
The doctor isn't there, he's been called away
He goes to the store and buys a bottle of whiskey
and headed back for home
There's a blizzard going on.
His horse stumbled and fell
I hacked him to his juggle's vein and left him there to die
As I struggled on alone
I don't know how she did it, she was only skin and bone
but she came out there and found me and dragged me in alone
She took that precious whiskey that had cost oh so dear
And poured it down this worthless hulk that stands ablatting here
Well, boys you know what happened, I lived, she passed away
I wrapped her in her wedding dressed and lay her in the clay
Well boys you know my story..
if any many should disgrace my dead
As sure as there's a God in heaven
I'll pump him full of lead
Well boys we'll see this through
Put me down for r$50
All these rough and ready men - give money for a tombstone
They all have tears in their eyes
Later when people go by on the train, they don't know why it curves around a tombstone
Very few people know the story of the child bride in the snow

Hello, I am looking for the name of the poem that is written somewhat like this: my love for you is so strong that it would have blown the lid off my coffin if not for the roses you places on top of it.
If you know the author, please share with me. Thank you :)

I" m not sure if my post went through or not?I came back into this site and do not see it. I will ask again.
I am looking for a poem but do not know the author or title. I do believe it was signed, anonymous.
There is a line towards the end that goes somewhat like this..." You are the only person you will never leave nor lose."
I desperately want this poem back. Years ago my home was broken into. Apparently the criminal had a taste for poetry because
they took my poem that I had professionally laminated and hanging on my wall!

When I was in college I read a poem. It was signed " anonymous"
One line (not the first) sticks in my memory. " You are the only person you will never leave nor lose."
I believe the poem was speaking on being good to oneself.
I had this poem professionally framed. When my house was robbed they took the framed poem as well.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
