I am looking for as many poems written in 1962 as possible. I need them for a birthday present for a person born in that year (as she's turning 50 this year it seems appropriate to give something specail...)
I've been looking on the Web already, but couldn't find anything... I'll really appreciate all your help!

Hello, I´m from Stuttgart/Germany and searching for a poem. After spending houres and houres in the www, I found your page and hope that you can help me.
The only thing I know is the refrain: " Oh, my lovely daffodil (s) and the words " a nicking and a nacking " (I am not sure if I spelled this right)
Is there somebody who could help, please.

Poem in a middle school anthology circa 1944, described as by a recently famous child (juvenile, adolescent?) girl poet. First two lines: " I'm in love with the janitor's boy/And he's in love with me...." Among several works that drew me into the study of literature. Who is/was this woman?

Some years ago I saw on televison Telly Savalas recite a poem at a function.
I can’t remember what the function was, or where it was, just that it was a stage in a large auditorium that could have been an annual film awards event. It was quite grand and formal.
This poem started each alternate verse with
" When a man grows older" and
" When a woman grows older" .
Some poems about gender are cheap and not at all desirable. This was not one of those, for it was used by Telly Savalas on stage to a large audience and was warmly applauded.
Each verse commented along the lines, for example, that grey hair in a man is looked upon as a sign of wisdom. The next verse reflected a woman will conceal it for as long as she is able.
It was well-written, excellent English, and flowed with a rhyme that was smooth and catching.
Does anyone know of it, or remember the occasion when Savalis recited it?
Are there any ideas where I could look to find it?

Seeking poem about a mountain bear, possibly a grizzly bear, that appeared in a 1953 California public school literature book. Poem described a party climbing a mountain, encountering a lair, and engaging in combat with an infuriated bear. I have been looking for that poem for more than 40 years.

Many years ago I found the poem below but don't recall where or who wrote it - or whether I even have all the right words. I would love some clarification on it please.
I cannot know your hopes and fears
But I can offer through the years
A friendly heart that's always there
To share your gladness or your care
Compassion when the world looks greay
And hope to cheer you on your way
I turn to you and your eyes
I read companionship
You are, my friend.

I remember a poem, vaguely, about a small militia (I think) attacking an army on a mountain (I think) and they were on a narrow path and the army stuck out their spikes or spears or something, and a guy from the militia charged forward, sacrificing himself by impaling himself on the spears or spikes, gathering as many as he could to create a hole in the army's defense so the others could attack. I originally thought it was charge of the light brigade but that wasn't it. Any help would be appreciated, google is useless for such vague searches.....Thanks!

about 30 years ago I heard the cockney duo, Chas and Dave, performing a song possibly based on a monologue.
The recurring line, maybe a chorus was " The Bosun's as deaf as a post" .I have searched high and low but
can't track it down.Any ideas?
